This extension starts the Tor executable in the background and on successful connection, redirects all your traffic through the Tor anonymous network to increase user privacy. Also when Tor is connected, WebRTC is disabled to prevent your public IP from revealing your identity.
Note that for the extension to run the Tor executable, you will need to install a NodeJS native client. This is a bridge connector to allow the extension to execute Tor commands.
It is possible to request a new identity (new IP) right from the extension toolbar panel. Also since the extension uses its own communication port, there will be no conflict with other running instances of Tor (like Tor Browser).
Please read FAQ #1 on the following page to prepare the extension to use Tor. For now, the Tor bundle is prepared for Mac OS and Windows.
