Tor

(The Onion Router) The largest implementation of onion routing, which is a method for transmitting data anonymously over the Internet. Run by volunteers, there are approximately a thousand Tor proxy servers on the Internet that provide the routing paths.

Onion Domains
There are tens of thousands of websites on the dark Web that use the high-level .onion domain, and Tor is used to access these sites. See dark Web.

Tor Browsing Bundle
The Browsing Bundle is a modified Firefox Web browser along with connection software for Windows, Mac and Linux. When run, it sets up a connection to the Tor network, and all Web requests are re-routed throughout the network to prevent someone from learning users' locations and which sites they visit. For more information, visit www.torproject.org. See anonymous Web surfing, onion routing, dark Web and Freenet.
