New Torbutton addon menu not inspiring any confidence
The new addon dialog really bothers me. I understand the goal is to reduce fingerprinting by reducing user options but its kind of a basic social psychology thing that when you want concerned people to trust you, you have to demonstrate that you really can do things to help keep them safe and Torbutton's reduced menus aren't inspiring any such confidence. I really, really don't like not being able to see the various privacy features of Tor and verify that they're set to work the way I expect them to.
I understand that there's documentation users can read and I trust that the Tor people continue to add features that make us safer (though not necessarily that features will always be configured for the best security right out of the box), but since the recent changes, I find myself worrying more about if Tor is still doing all the things I expect because suddenly the addon menus only cover a couple of privacy features and all the rest is hidden.
