About Fire.onion (Browser + Tor)

Fire.onion lets you browse the web anonymously by routing all traffic over a series of randomly-selected proxy servers using a technique called onion routing. All data is encrypted multiple times, analogous to the layers of an onion, so that each proxy can only decrypt a single layer. Addresses are encrypted together with the data to make sure that each proxy only knows the address of it's immediate successor and predecessor, but not the entire route.

Features

- No additional apps needed

Great app, and magnificent browser. Thumbs up on design, user interface and options. As per Aug. 2016, this seems to be the only TOR browser able to play YouTube videos, a major plus. ONE catch; The app quckly eats up memory, and cause CPU-lag, at which time it auto-restarts, ending the session abruptly... Memory is not released, even if tabs are closed. Needs to be adressed. A bookmark management feature would also lift up a notch. But otherwise; Fantastic app.

Samsung Galaxy S5 on Marshmallow: Much more customizable than Orfox or other Tor-compatable browsers, but loses sync when minimized. Slow connecting to the Tor network, but I find some sites loaded faster than Orfox. Finally got tired enough of the bugginess to give up on it.

A70%
by A####:

best of its kind!! one bug though: volume keys don't work in app, however, pressing task button solves the problem temporarly, untill back again. Btw, youtube works minimised, with screen locked - a big 10+!!! it loads fast, it reacts fast, at least on 4g or wifi and on a qcore with 3Gb ram. almost flowlesly

J70%
by J####:

I like this more than the official tor app for android (orbot) since theirs can't even connect. And this is a 2-in-1 app! Only concerns are: the tabs button should only be 1 click away and why hasn't this been updated for about a year? Hope this isn't abandoned.

E70%
by E####:

Sure, back button doesn't work on newest update. The app doesn't feel "polished." I'd like to see a built in passcode option. Can't Remember what I paid, if anything, but the developer has continued to improve. Thanls.

H70%
by H####:

It's the only tor browser I can get to work on my chromebook so there's something to be said for that. I'm able to access a whole host of onion sites, which is great. Where the app lets itself down is in that it's not easy to use on a chromebook. The back/forward buttons don't work; the back button on the top bar (left) doesn't work. In fact, the only way I can navigate at all is by opening the menu on the top right and clicking < then opening the menu and clicking < and so on. Quite time consuming. Is there a shortcut or two I'm missing out on?

K70%
by K####:

Tor fire/onion if u don't know what t.o.r.onion is, every1 has a slow speed when it's going though several routers on the entire web. I think this 1 is sublime. It's better than orbot

O70%
by O####:

My first attempt to run the browser was probably on a firewalled network. Orbot-compatible browsers worked but this one didn't. I gave the browser another chance on another network and it worked. it tends to freeze after a few minutes when you open multiple tabs.

P70%
by P####:

TOR is TOR. This version is not affiliated w. The TOR Project. It has some nice features but is very jerky. Like try cutting your PGP key from one WB page to another. Impossible! Also, JavaScript is either ON or OFF. No ability to whitelist.

M70%
by M####:

It for some reason won't let me access the onion pages. It keeps saying that I have to use a Tor Browser. I thought this app came equipped with a Tor browser. What the...,??

B70%
by B####:

This app has a few strange idiosyncrasies but by and large it's solid. I'm installing to a new device after having used it for about a year on another so I guess that is a thumbs up.

Q70%
by Q####:

I have issues accessing certain .onion links while some work some don't P. S you people complaining about the back button are idiots... There most definitely is a back button and it works fine you just have to hit the menu on the right and hit the arrow don't use your phones button... Foools i tell you... All of you

G70%
by G####:

Works well, does what it says it can do. every now & then it's slow, & once crashed. But 85% of the time works like a charm

L70%
by L####:

Dumb browser. Will automatically restart itself if you have been inactive on it for like 5 minutes. Really annoying when you are trying to download.

I70%
by I####:

JUST LOVE IT ,I just got it installed on my tablet! So far it's fast enough for most of browser activity.Need to try all functions before someone writes a comment ! This browser simple but has all the important bell's & whistles any major browser has, just love it! No ads :):):) hurray :) A big thanks to u all who made this possible to have it for free, blessings TO U ,thank u,thank u,thank u

U70%
by U####:

I tried orbot and other combo, but it not work. This app works well, a self contained tor and firefox bundle. Some times the app closes automatically, but other than that no issues. Thanks.

The best thing about this app is you can achieve a new kind of freedom.....A freedom that allows us (we) to do what we were put here to do in the first place....have free will, make good choices, or bad choices, ( by mistake or purposely) live straight balls to the wall,or find a little wifey and go to work so you have nice things......I think what I'm trying to say is life gets stale no matter what end of the spectrum were on.....It's just nice to have a new and anonymous way to be who we want to be....now

If you're smart enough to understand what the dark net is and what it does you should already know that (the Tor project) is The ONLY trusted source for all things related to the tor for onion access.

So far i love this web browser , I like many of the features the web browser has ; especially don't have to put up with a Million cookies per session. :) keep up with the good works :):):)

Z70%

It shows your ip address even if u turned it off..govt can easily track your ip address from your kind of searches...so tell me which kind of privacy does it give to us..thank u

J70%
by J####:

The on screen back button is not functioning. Easiest way to replicate is to do a web search, click on a link and press back. Another easy to replicate is to go to settings, them press the back button. Otherwise, the browser works well

Y70%
by Y####:

How do you people complain? Its a completely free app! Criticism is always important but you can't complain about the devs because there's one bug

E70%
by E####:

It works as it should..But... A suggestion. When visiting a lot of sites, they use damn pop up Windows. And to close them in this fire.onion browser it takes a few steps. Creating a tabbed browser you could x it closed quickly, but this one you have to open the settings, click on tabs and close the unwanted tabbed browser that opened over the desired window. Why does the pop-up open over the tab page that you were looking at? Like the pirate vat site. It uses pop ups but the pop-up take precedence over the page your veiwing. Fix that for 5 stars... But good work on the tor browser.

by K####:

Till couple of days back app was working fine. App is getting shut within a minute, i've reinstalled app again n again still the problem remains.

Y70%
by Y####:

Needs polish and a few more features, but a reasonable TOR browser, although keyboard bug is STILL in evidence! Would rate 4 stars if it was fixed! (Doesn't work with slide typing - must type one letter at a time). Also is very much slower than Anonymous Private TOR Browser.

BUG REPORT: ON THE LATEST UPDATE, THE PHONE'S BACK BUTTON DOESN'T WORK (TO NAVIGATE TO THE LAST PAGE VIEWED)!!! (NOTE 4 ON SPRINT) I'm an IT guy and I love to keep my phone optimized. A great way to do that is to minimize the amount of apps you install. Fire replaces 2 apps with 1 (Orbot + a Tor browser) plus it works well, has a nice interface and simplifies Tor. So for those reasons, I love it!

E70%
by E####:

The pages load a bit slow, and it's annoying to have to go into my menu and hit the back button rather than tapping my on screen keys, but besides that, it's great! Another feature I'd die to see is Flash support.

N70%
by N####:

I totally love and appreciate the integrated setup( tor+browser). However, solely with the intention to encourage improvement, I would also like to mention that I am highly disappointed to find out that the browser does not allow access to the recent pages. Once you click a link there's no going back! Dear developer(s), please do find a solution to this. Thank you.

I installed this hours ago and it won't go past 25% saying "loading networkstatus concensus" but literally just spins there. Is there a step I'm missing?

O70%
by O####:

Please stop complaining about there no going back. It is a dynamic IP address with every click it erases history and makes it harder to track you. Be happy there is no back button. There are some glitches as well there are understandable to complain about (keyboard not appearing). Be happy this tool is free. If you really want to go back I suggest Orbot and Orfox.

X70%
by X####:

Needs work. The pages load a bit slow. Always moves back to the last page and once i put a video in fullscreen i cant go back. I have to start all over.

P70%
by P####:

I regret updating it this time. Its like one of your update is good enough to really like this app but the following update gets you to hate this app. I cannot believe it developers! How do you screw up an already screwed up app while trying to improve it!?? Anyway here are my problems 1.Standard AOS back button has stopped working again 2.Cannot open the text box in half of the sites which used to work before and they do work with another browser and 3.Still cannot save files on SD card

M70%
by M####:

I would and have recommend this app for anyone curious about Tor. It's all in one browser makes it simple for beginners and mobile users. I love it, support + respect for the developer. ❤ {Wake up America, do some real research, get familiar with Project Tor & Anonymous}

Is there a way to change the color theme? Black is awesome, but I go without charger sometimes and have to use a low brightness setting. Is there a way you can make it brighter?

by S####:

I'd rate 5 stars but there are minor problems that other people pointed out mostly lack of minor functions. There's nothing mechanically wrong with it though ... so yeah.

L70%
by L####:

Tor integration is good. However, the browser is missing a few basic necessary features. No back, no opening in a new tab; it's pretty unusable in its current form.
