[tor-talk] Fw: Tor implementation in JavaScript / FirefoxOS

It would be easy to build a js onion proxy (outside of the browser that 
time) with node-Tor.

Assuming that FF OS does support proxy settings and node-like features 
(TCP sockets at least), I took a (maybe too) brief look to FF OS and dit 
not find the detailed API documentation.

Great, thanks! I think there is a feeling that it is somehow an
"enterprise" feature, and so is often left out.

Otherwise, will dig more into porting Tor to "Gonk":

and perhaps providing Tor native as an optional update package:

The real question is, can Tor run in the background as a general service
to multiple apps (as on Android), or will it have to built into each app
(like on iOS).
