Tor Browser Launcher is intended to make Tor Browser easier to
install and use for GNU/Linux users. You install torbrowser-launcher
from your distribution's package manager and it handles everything else:
* Downloads and installs the most recent version of Tor Browser in your language
and for your computer's architecture, or launches Tor Browser if it's already
installed (Tor Browser will automatically update itself)
* Verifies Tor Browser's signature for you, to ensure the version you downloaded
was cryptographically signed by Tor developers and was not tampered with
* Adds "Tor Browser" and "Tor Browser Launcher Settings" application launcher
to your desktop environment's menu
* Optionally plays a modem sound when you open Tor Browser
(because Tor is so slow)
