[tor-dev] UX Idea - A controller inside TBB

Hi Devs,

[For those of you who have missed Vidalia, and for those of you who
hated it dearly but still needed an easy-to-use Tor controller]

A long while ago, when I was bored on an airplane, I tried to imagine a
nice controller inside TBB, with all the good features of Vidalia and
some more stuff.

Fast forwarding to couple days ago...

I was hitting a weird exit node that wouldn't let me connect to any site
except Google. I only had TBB on that machine, and couldn't find a way
to find my Tor IP address. That UX nightmare reminded me of this image I
complied on that trip. Although it's not finished and is based on
imagination only! I thought I'd share it anyways, hoping to inspire
people to start hacking on it.


Here's my question for you:
How would you perfect that image? What's missing?

Let's talk about your ideal controller (inside browser).

Who knows... maybe someone would read this thread and make it happen.
