 > Hi! Is not clear to me what is better/doable. If Orfox users can update
 Orfox and get Tor Browser, that'd be ideal. If not we can offer them to
 download from the options we have.

 need two apps for browsing anymore.

 These look so good! Thanks! Unfortunately users can't upgrade directly
 from Orfox to Tor Browser, so they must go through these steps (install
 new app and uninstall orfox).

 I think we can say "Orfox is now Tor Browser", and we can gives users the
 F-Droid button if they currently have F-Droid installed, and similar for
 Google Play. Downloading directly from the website is a little risky, but
 I'm not totally against it. If we include this option, then we'll need
 additional verification added into the orfox update (verifying the
 signature is valid), but it's possible.
