Advanced Onion Router Review

Fernando Ortega
An alternative router to the official Tor bundle for Windows
A review of Advanced Onion Router by Fernando Ortega

Thanks to the selfless work of the developers over at TOR, we are provided with a way to get around the horrible system of data collection in the United States and other countries. Programs like Tor Browser Bundle provide us all with a way to circumvent both censorship and government spy operations. Advanced Onion Router provides an alternative to the Tor Browser Bundle and allows its users to browse the web anonymously.

Advanced Onion Router itself will not provide you with a fast Internet connection and it will slow you down a bit, depending on your Internet Service Provide. With that in mind, it is a viable and working alternative to Tor and Vidalia.

In contrast to Tor Browser Bundle, Advanced Onion Router provides several advanced options of which are configurable by the user up front. At the end of the day though, the two programs work in a very similar way. Advanced Onion Router just provides an alternative to Tor Browser Bundle.

In the configuration of AOR, you can customize many features and the most useful is probably the banning function which is featured prominently. You may also active ISP filtering, blacklisting and advanced settings. Advanced Onion Router also includes a sandboxing feature which can essentially control specific programs and services.

Advanced Onion Router is not the best way to use the Onion network, but it certainly is an alternative which may be used and provides a streamlined way to configure usage of Onion browsing.

Advanced Onion Router can hide your true IP address and circumvent state censorship.
