Tor Project has announced the release of Tor Browser 8.5 for all supported operating systems. The new version of Tor Browser comes with significant security fixes and is the first stable release for the Android operating system.
Tor Browser is based on Firefox ESR code. The Mozilla Foundation released Firefox 67 and a new version of ESR 60.7.0 on Tuesday.
The new version of Firefox added new features to the browser and fixed various security issues, including two critical vulnerabilities that affected Tor Browser.
The new version of Tor Browser 8.5 is available for download on all supported operating systems Windows, Linux and Mac OS, on the official website.
Tor Browser 8.5 for Android Tara, the first stable release, is available through Google Play. The browser developers promise that we will soon see it on F-Droid, an alternative Android App Store.
Tor for Android "provides essentially the same protections that can be found on desktop platforms" although there are some "feature gaps" according to a post in the official blog of Tor.
