[tor-qa] 3.5.4-meek-1 (meek bundles with browser TLS camouflage)

Please try these bundles, which are configured to run the meek transport
automatically. What's different about these than past meek bundles, is
that they use a web browser extension to make the HTTPS requests, so
that the TLS layer looks like Firefox. They are built on top of the
recent 3.5.4 release so they have the OpenSSL Heartbleed fix.


With luck, the bundles will work for you without any special
configuration. If you look at your network traffic while you are using
them, you will see some HTTPS connections to www.google.com, and nothing
to any Tor bridge or any protocol other than HTTPS.

The bundle should take care of starting up the extension and killing it
when it is done. If it doesn't, it is a bug. There is a known bug
(#11429), which is that on Mac you will see two dock icons. The second
one is the one that is running the extension.
