48
-    (a graphical user interface for Tor).
49
-    They come in different flavors, preconfigured for a convenient setup: The Relay bundle is set to forward traffic for other Tor users, the Bridge bundle turns your computer into a <a href="<page docs/bridges>">bridge</a>. Apart from that preconfiguration, all Vidalia bundles are the same and can easily be reconfigured.

-    If you want to use Tor for anonymous web browsing, please use the <a href="<page projects/torbrowser>">Tor Browser Bundle</a>. It comes with readily configured Tor and a browser patched for better anonymity. To use SOCKS directly (for instant messaging, Jabber, IRC, etc),
75
-    you can point your application at Tor (localhost
76
-    port 9050), but see <a href="<wikifaq>#SOCKSAndDNS">this FAQ
77
-    entry</a> for why this may be dangerous. 
78
-    For applications with HTTP proxy support, but no support for Tor's SOCKS proxy, try <a href="http://www.pps.univ-paris-diderot.fr/~jch/software/polipo/">polipo</a>. For applications that
79
-    support neither SOCKS nor HTTP, take a look at SocksCap or <a
