xB Browser (formerly known as TorPark and Xerobank browser) was a web browser designed to run on both the Tor and XeroBank anonymity networks, and is available as component of the xB Machine As such, a secure and encrypted connection to any of the Tor or XeroBank routers can be created from any computer with a suitable Internet connection, and in February 2008 over 6.5 million downloads making xB Browser the most popular anonymous browser on the Internet.
Steve Topletz co-released Torpark v.18.104.22.168 with CULT OF THE DEAD COW/Hacktivismo on 19 September 2006 after more than one year development based on Portable Firefox web browser with built in support for Tor and using the Nullsoft Scriptable Install System. In 2007 it was redesigned from scratch.
A cross-compatible version for Mac OS X and Linux was being developed based on xB Machine, due to be available in August 2008, The XeroBank network routes traffic through at least two multi-jurisdictional hops. In contrast to Tor, the XeroBank network supports both TCP and UDP protocols, performs channel multiplexing for low observability, is run by a single entity and costs money to use. The XeroBank network is accessible via SSH and OpenVPN protocols. xB Browser internally manages a SSH connection to XeroBank, but will recognize and submit to OpenVPN connections.
Besides the anonymous networks, xB Browser uses following add-ons:
- Adblock Plus,
- Cookies and Flash cookies removal,
- Browser history clearing after closing
