Comment (by mcs):

 This would not be a good idea because we don't want the average person to
 download something named "Tor Browser" and later learn that it does not
 use the Tor Network.

 Using Tor Browser without Tor is something we can support for advanced
 users, but in my opinion it would be dangerous to provide such a browser
 to most users. And I don't think we have enough developers working on Tor
 Browser to support a rebranded fork (not named "Tor Browser") although
 someone else could start such a project.
