I was repeating what Arrakis said, and as he was the original developer
of TorPark, I assumed his information is correct.

: 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.

Conversely, the newest version of Firefox may open you up to anonymity
attacks, even with torbutton enabled.  We're still researching it and
should have a TBB wtih Firefox 3 coming soon.
