Onion: New Browser Brings Encrypted Web Browsing To The iPhone

A new iPhone app, dubbed “Onion Browser,” finally provides what seems to be an adequate solution to anonymous browsing. The app connects to an encrypted Tor network, which redirects your connection through a variety of tunnels before you actually get to a desired site. Obviously, this slows up your browsing, but more importantly, it masks your IP address–even from your ISP!–and allows you to circumvent firewalls. The “New Identity” feature even clears yoru cache and generates a new IP address for you.

Onion browser is available for $0.99 in the app store
