I agree with Moritz' concerns about the Tor logo, but it seems your new
solution addresses those quite well.

Nice work!  A few comments/questions below:

- I have to admit, I don't know much about the various JavaScript
libraries/frameworks, so I don't know about pros and cons of using
Backbone or angular.js or Ember.js.  Can you say why you chose Ember.js
over the others?

- Is this an Atlas fork or a rewrite?  Are you planning to contribute
your changes to Atlas, or do you want to run this as a new project?  In
the former case, please be sure to talk to Arturo or Sathya (both are on
this list).  In the latter case, please let me know when your tool is
deployed, and I'll keep you posted about future Onionoo procotol changes.

- Are you interested in enhancing Atlas or your tool even more?  There
are quite a few tickets open, where #6320 seems most urgent:
