Several major tech firms are in talks with
to include the software in products that can potentially reach over 500 million Internet users around the world. One particular firm wants to include Tor as a "private browsing mode" in a mainstream Web browser, allowing users to easily toggle connectivity to the Tor anonymity network on and off. "They very much like Tor Browser and would like to ship it to their customer base," Tor executive director Andrew Lewman wrote, explaining the discussions but declining to name the specific company. "Their product is 10-20 percent of the global market, this is of roughly 2.8 billion global Internet users." The product that
best fits Lewman's description, by our estimation, is Mozilla Firefox
, the third-most popular Web browser online today and home to, you guessed it, 10 to 20 percent of global Internet users.
