PirateBrowser, the censorship busting browser built on the tor bundle and released by The Pirate Bay, reached over 100,000 downloads within three days of its release.

PirateBrowser is a bundle package of the Tor client (Vidalia), FireFox Portable browser (with foxyproxy addon) and some custom configs that allows you to circumvent censorship that certain countries such as Iran, North Korea, United Kingdom, The Netherlands, Belgium, Finland, Denmark, Italy and Ireland impose onto their citizens.

PirateBrowser isn’t a private browser it simply helps people circumvent government blocks and access websites that, for whatever reason, you’re ISP might be blocking.

If you’re looking for truly private browswing experience and a browser that protects your privacy you’re going to need to access a VPN. Check out Privacy.io which encrypts all of your data and makes your internet usage untraceable.
