Hi all,

Today, we decided that the thing to test most urgently is the brand
relationship between onionbrowser and Tor Browser/Tor Project Inc. We plan
to  survey users from various countries and different amounts of previous
knowledge of Tor, and ask them the questions here

We had other ideas, but we decided it was important to see if users
believed that onionbrowser was legitimate and would download that browser
over the others. Identifying onionbrowser as having a relationship with Tor
and to realize that other browser do not is a non-trivial task, since
onionbrowser has a different name and icon than Tor Browser, and there are
many others in the app store who are impersonating to be the mobile Tor
browser (see here

The next steps are to get the survey ready, host it, and reach out to our
partners to distribute. I hope this will give us some useful information!
