PirateBrowser reaches 5 million downloads

PirateBrowser reaches 5 million downloads
The Pirate Bay's browser for those worried about censorship has been downloaded over 5 million times from the official site since its launch last August.

Of course, the browser is available on other software sites including Afterdawn, so the figure could be potentially much larger.

PirateBrowser is a mix of the Tor client (Vidalia), FireFox Portable browser (with foxyproxy addon) "and some custom configs" to allow you to circumvent censorship. Although it has Tor in it, anonymity is not the point of the Pirate Browser.

The torrent tracker explained at launch that the "PirateBrowser is a bundle package...that allows you to circumvent censorship that certain countries such as Iran, North Korea, United Kingdom, The Netherlands, Belgium, Finland, Denmark, Italy and Ireland impose onto their citizens."

TPB is one of the most universally banned sites on the Web, as governments try to keep their citizens away.

As an added kick, the browser comes with pre-loaded bookmarks including The Pirate Bay, IsoHunt, Fenopy, EZTV, KickassTorrents, Bitsnoop, H33T and more.

    Wasn't aware of this browser, it's been a long time since I've browsed PB. I've had issues with H33T and I see this browser does to, is it shutdown like IsoHunt is now too? Or is it moving around on domains? I like the Movie4K.to site I'm going to have to try that site with my new 4K (really UHD) TV with that site.
