Summary

Browse with Onion is a lite add-on that let you easily browse a certain website (not the whole browser) with tor network.

Before using the addon please make sure your computer (PC or MAC) is connected to TOR. A separate patch is prepared, to help users easily connect to the TOR network. In order to get the patch please visit this GitHub repo and download (mac.zip) or (win.zip) file depending on your operating system. Then follow the instructions on this GitHub repo in order to connect to TOR network.

Note #1: ONLY added domains will pass through TOR network and all other domains/websites will remain intact from TOR proxy.

Note #2: before using the addon you need to add desired domains which you want to pass through TOR proxy. In order to add a new domain, please open toolbar popup and add desired domains comma separated in the designated area. For example, if you want to browse - torproject.org - with tor network, please add - .torproject.org - in the input area (note to add * at the beginning and end). All changes are auto-saved to the memory. Also please note that, items need to be comma separated and without space in the popup (.torproject.org,.example.com,...). As mentioned above, ONLY these domains will pass through the TOR network and all other websites will remain intact from TOR proxy.

Note #3: if you want to browse ALL websites with TOR proxy, please install my other add-on: Onion Browser Button
