I could add this function to Torpark, if:
1) A lot of people want it
2) TOR project implements directory distribution that can use these
temporary middleman and exit nodes as a positive, rather than
depending on long-lived nodes.

You can do this with Torpark right now. You can reach .onion addresses
right from the address bar. If people would like to compile a list of
services, I could publish that list as browser bookmarks in the next
release of Torpark.
