Hi Folks,

This is Zhuotao from University of Illinois.

I have a problem of understanding how Tor browser interacts with the Tor source code. My understanding is that in order to use Tor, there much be a Tor client instance running locally. But when using Tor browser, I did not notice the existence of Tor client at all (which is good for usability). However, I do not understand how the Tor browser interacts with Tor client in background? Any idea is greatly appreciated. :)
