If I start the Windows Tor browser bundle using
Start Tor Browser.exe and subsequently close the browser, Vidalia shuts down Tor and then exits. In Linux, if I start the Tor browser bundle using the
start-Tor-browser script, and then shutdown the browser, Tor and Vidalia stay live.
- Why do the two bundles behave differently? That is, what design considerations went into making the behaviour different in the two bundles?
- Are there any security implications of the different behaviours that would lead a user to prefer one bundle over the other?
