Create "Clear Tracking Data" menu option
To whom it may concern,
The current TorButton (or is not now called TorBrowser Botton?) "New Identity" feature when activated, closes all currently open tabs to protect from a variety of attacks with respect to linking old and new "identities" (i.e., pseudonyms). At least that is how I understand the current state of TorButton.
I think that feature is grand for times I want to use my anon e-mail as user XYZ, after visiting a forum as user ABC. However, I think we should be given an option as to whether we want to simply try to find a faster circuit via. New Identity vs. closing all currently open tabs for the sake of anonymity.
I see the use of New Identity via. TorButton as so:
Use case 1: New IP address (exit node) for anonymity between pseudonyms.
Use case 2: New circuit in an attempt to find a faster circuit.
Note: I realise I can use the New Identity button via. Vidalia to try and find a faster circuit without closing all tabs, however, I do not always use Tor with Vidalia ...
