Anonymous Surfing with JonDoBrowser

JonDoFox is a web browser that already includes the JonDo client and all necessarry anonymization functions. It is particularly optimized for anonymous and secure web surfing and is based on the Tor Browser.

Using the security controller in the JonDoBrowser menu (left top in the browser) you can control how strong the protection should be. Hint: The stronger the protection, the more usability restrictions might apply on web sites.

Known restrictions

JonDoBrowser is very new and will be under strong development within the next months. Therefore there are some minor problems, but we are working on them!

In JonDo mode, JonDoBrowser currently creates a high load on the computer. This is aimed to be fixed in the next version, which will be available at the end of November. Temporary solution: Install the proxy programm JonDo separately and start it before the browser. The browser will then show you a warning that you can ignore right now. You then only cannot use the function "New identity", but have to manually switch the JonDo cascade if you like to.

Sometimes JonDoBrowser falsely thinks to recognize that the control connection to JonDo is broken.This does not have any effects on security.

High security setting: the browser currently does not remember the HTTP session protection setting. After restart, the security setting has to be reset to "Medium" or "Low". Afterwards back to "High". Then this function is active again. You can check this in the ip-check.

The JonDo mode cannot yet be run correctly from an USB flash device. The configuration file is stored on the computer, and an existing Java istallation is needed. Temporary solution: You have to separately install and start JonDo in the portable version on the USB flash drive. NOTE that as long as JonDo is not started (!), you will get a proxy error in the browser instead of web pages.

The JonDo mode is not yet compatible with Windows 32bit/XP. If you are using such a system, you have to separately install and start JonDo. Ignore the 32 bit error message then. NOTE that as long as JonDo is not started (!), you will get a proxy error in the browser instead of web pages.

Currently JonDo starts and stops automatically with JonDoBrowser. We will ad an option to keep JonDo running, but for now: If you want JonDo to run independently from JonDoBrowser, install JonDo separately, start it before JonDoBrowser starts, and ignore the JonDoBrowser error message on startup.

It is currently not yet possible to register JonDoBrowser as the system default browser.

Linux: You have to manually install Java. Otherwise, JonDo will not start.
