Please do!

That said, you're already falling into a trap when you say "all the
directories". I know the person who ran "the hidden wiki" -- he shut
it down in 2003. Now there are a pile of hidden service websites, all
claiming to be "the directory". There's clearly a need for this role,
but there is no official center or starting point. This is both good
and bad, as you can imagine.

You should be aware that OnionBrowser isn't made by any Tor people.
I think that's the name for the closed-source package for various Apple
platforms, yes? (I hear it has some Tor components inside, but who knows.)
