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 but can be used with it, 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, flash etc. that just routing all your traffic via Tor is just not enough.

Features.
  • Support for Google Chrome, Chromium, Opera, Palemoon, Iceweasel, Mozilla Firefox, without the need for add-ons.
  • Can be used with 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 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.
  • Requires Oracle Java 7 for Windows or OpenJRE 1.7 supplied with your Linux distro, please ensure this is installed before installing SelekTOR.
  • Windows version has the latest Tor included the Linux version requires the Tor package to be installed this should be supplied with your distro or you can use the official Tor package repository supplied by the Tor Project.

Video Tutorial: Installing SelekTOR 3 on Ubuntu Linux.

1) Install and run the browser of your choice Firefox, Palemoon, Iceweasel, Chromium, Chrome or Opera.

2) Ensure that your chosen browser is configured to use the operating system settings for proxying, this is normally the installation default for most browsers.

3) Ensure latest Java (JRE) runtime is installed (VERY IMPORTANT), usually supplied with your distro.

4) Ensure the latest stable version of the TOR client is installed on your distro, If your distro does not come with TOR in its software repository then you should the packages/repository provided by the Tor Project.
Once Tor is installed you should disable the Tor service in whatever your distro uses to modify boot/system Services.
Also ensure that Vidalia is not installed.

5) Install SelekTOR using either the supplied Debian package or extract the tarball and enter the folder you extracted it to and follow the instructions in the INSTALL file.

Known Issues:

Javaembeddedframe appears in taskbar on Cinnamon desktop, only way to disable it is to disable tray icon feature.
Mageia with KDE4: Use Chrome/Chromium/Opera instead of Firefox.
LXDE & XFCE Desktops : Use Firefox, Palemoon or Iceweasel instead of Chrome/Chromium/Opera as they lack the proper proxying support on those desktops.
