SelekTOR 3, Tor Exit Node Selection Made Simple

SelekTOR is a Java based GUI frontend for the Tor Client, it acts as a Tor launcher and exit node chooser for browsers that support system proxying using PAC files.
It is not a replacement for the Tor Browser, if you are looking for a full comprehensive anonymity package then use Tor Browser as there are so many ways to figure out your real IP via javascript etc. that just routing all your traffic via Tor is just not enough.

The Linux version is open source under the GPL2 license and the source code is included in the binary download.

Features.
  • Support for Google Chrome, Chromium, Opera, Palemoon, Iceweasel, Mozilla Firefox, without the need for add-ons.
  • Can be used with the Tor Browser and Privoxy.
  • You can quickly select Tor exit nodes by country.
  • Greatly simplifies the usage and configuration of Tor in client mode, SelekTOR does most of the hard stuff for you.
  • Now supports non-unique (Un-named) nodes giving a greater selection of nodes than previously available with SelekTOR 2
  • Nodes are now filtered to ensure that they support HTTP on port 80, and thus ensuring greater reliability when used with web browsers.
  • Will continuously monitor and maintain a connection to the exit node with the best response time, with as little downtime as possible.
  • As well as proxying all traffic through the active Tor node, SelekTOR can also do selective routing of traffic through the active tor node based on URL patterns.
  • Whois and Atlas Node details (pretty graphs) available with a single mouse click..
  • Needs very little configuration, the installation defaults will work for most people out of the box.
  • Currently runs on Windows 7/Vista and most Linux desktops XFCE, LXDE, Gnome 2, Gnome 3 Shell, KDE4, Unity.
  • Built in proxy pattern editor, Import and Export pattern files as a single zip file.

Mageia with KDE4: Use Chromium instead of Firefox.
LXDE & XFCE Desktops : Use Firefox, Palemoon or Iceweasel instead of Chrome/Chromium as they lack the proper proxying support on those desktops.
