Tor Browser

https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html
A Firefox ESR-based web browser for use of the TOR network

Tor Browser, previously known as Tor Browser Bundle (TBB), is the flagship product of the Tor Project. It consists of a modified Mozilla Firefox ESR web browser, the TorButton, TorLauncher, NoScript and HTTPS Everywhere Firefox extensions and the Tor proxy.

The Tor software protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location, and it lets you access sites which are blocked.

The Tor Browser can run off a USB flash drive, comes with a pre-configured web browser to protect your anonymity, and is self-contained.
