But be careful following the instructions in the youtube video. It looks
like they made some deb somewhere and stuck Tor Browser Bundle in it

having you install, now or in the future, and B) I have no idea how or
whether they'll keep that deb up to date.

It would be nice to make a deb that has Tor Browser in it. There are
a bunch of trac tickets on the topic. I think Micah from EFF has been
working on it as well; but I don't think this youtube video is pointing
to Micah's thing.

I wrote Tor Browser Launcher, which is currently (very slowly) in the process of getting packaged in Debian. Before that, the way to install it now is to go to https://github.com/micahflee/torbrowser-launcher and follow the instructions in the readme.

It works great on Ubuntu, and it keeps your Tor Browser updated, and even verifies PGP signatures of the downloads.

I haven't had time to work on it in some time, but I would like to one day make it available for Windows and OS X too. If anyone wants to volunteer :).
