    Not the latter. And you have to use tor the old fashioned way, setting your proxy settings in Chrome to 127.0.0.1 and booting up tor and privoxy.
    I have yet to get it to work but I've always sucked at tor.

    Hi, thank you for your kind and prompt reply.

    I'm now using Vidalia for tor.
    My Vidalia can be successfully launched and reporting
    Connected to the Tor network!
    I also noticed
    Chromium->Options->Under the Bonnect->Change Proxy Settings->Manual Proxy Configuration->HTTP Proxy

    I updated it to the same value
    as in
    Vidalia->Settings->Advanced->Control Port

    Namely the proxy value now is
    127.0.0.1:9051


    And afterwards, I clicked
    Apply System-Wide... to update the system proxy settings.

    Finally, close the dialogue "Network Proxy Preferences".

    Chromium is still not able to visit some websites, including
    twitter
    facebook
    mitbbs
    etc.


    Have you done it successfully?


    Best Regards
    JIA

    I'd like it if there were an easy way to check or uncheck that 'use a proxy' for Chrome. I don't think we would need a plugin for it right? Google could just build it in.
