Andrew, this is incorrect.  Xerobank xB, preconfigured(in free mode) to use the tor network, is available for download at:  http://xerobank.com/download/xb-browser/

I'll defer to you on the rest because you were talking about Xerobank's commercial xB, preconfigured to use their fee-based onyx network.  I can tell you take a great deal of pride in TBB and I certainly meant no disrespect.

My biggest concern with fee-based products/services, in general, is trusting any corporation with customer data no matter how reassuring their privacy policy seems.  My biggest concern with TBB is the old version of the modified firefox browser may expose users to security risks.  That is why free-mode xB may just offer the best of both worlds.
