<h2><a class="anchor" href="#packagediff">What's the difference between Stable &amp; Unstable?</a></h2>

<p>
Stable packages are released when we believe the features and code will
not change for many months.
</p>
<p>
Unstable packages are released so you can help us test new features and bugfixes. Even though they have a higher version number
than the stable versions listed above, there is a much higher chance of
serious reliability and security bugs in these downloads.  Please be prepared to <a href="https://bugs.torproject.org/">report bugs</a>.

<h2><a class="anchor" href="#Warning">Warning: Want Tor to really
work?</a></h2>

<p>
...then please don't just install it and go on.  You need to change
some of your habits, and reconfigure your software!
Tor by itself is <em>NOT</em> all you need to maintain your anonymity.
There are several major pitfalls to watch out for:
</p>

<ol>
<li>
Tor only protects Internet applications that are configured to
send their traffic through Tor &mdash; it doesn't magically anonymize
all your traffic just because you install it.  We recommend you
use <a href="http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-older.html">Firefox</a> with the <a
href="https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/2275/">Torbutton</a> extension.
</li>

<li>
Browser plugins such as Java, Flash, ActiveX, RealPlayer,
Quicktime, Adobe's PDF plugin, and others can be manipulated
into revealing your IP address. You should probably
<a href="http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/faqs/uninstall.html">uninstall your
plugins</a>
(go to "about:plugins" to see what is installed), or investigate <a
href="https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/1237/">QuickJava</a>, <a
href="https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/433/">FlashBlock</a>, and
<a href="http://noscript.net/">NoScript</a>
if you really need them. Consider removing extensions that look up
more information about the websites you type in (like Google toolbar),
as they may bypass Tor and/or broadcast sensitive information. Some
people prefer using two browsers (one for Tor, one for unsafe browsing).
</li>

<li>
Beware of cookies: if you ever browse without Tor 
and a site gives you a cookie, that cookie could identify you even when
you start using Tor again. You should clear your cookies frequently. <a
href="https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/82/">CookieCuller</a> can help
protect any cookies you do not want to lose.
</li>

<li>
Tor anonymizes the origin of your traffic,
and it encrypts everything inside the Tor network, but <a
href="https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/TheOnionRouter/TorFAQ#ExitEavesdroppers">it
can't encrypt your traffic between the Tor network and its final
destination.</a>
If you are communicating sensitive information, you should use as much
care as you would on the normal scary Internet &mdash; use HTTPS or other
end-to-end encryption and authentication.
</li>

<li>
While Tor blocks attackers
on your local network from discovering or influencing your destination,
it opens new risks: malicious or misconfigured Tor exit nodes can send
you the wrong page, or even send you embedded Java applets disguised as
domains you trust.
</li>
</ol>

<br />
<p>
Be smart and learn more. Understand what Tor does and does not offer.
This list of pitfalls isn't complete, and we need your
