My normal using of Tor is running iceweales and other applications
starting through gksu under transparently-torified user.
When I use iceweales (3.5.16, from distr Debian Squeeze) I use the TB
(ealier - 1.2.5, now - 1.3.2alpha).
I use another browser for browsing the Net without Tor.
I use ssh and etc. services directly form command-line belonging
transparently-torified users without any http-proxies, torsocks and etc.
It thinks to me that it is a good idea to distribute own tor browser but
I cannot find the stable version of Tor Browser Bundle on the Torprokect
