Irish TD attacks open-source browsers, anonymous networks

Patrick O’Donovan, a parliamentary member of Ireland’s current ruling party, Fine Gael, has called for a crackdown on open-source internet browsers, which he says allows users to be anonymous and partake in illegal activities.

Examples of open-source browsers include Chromium, Konqueror, Lynx, and Mozilla Firefox. The extended support release version of Firefox is what is used, albeit slightly modified, in the anonymous The Onion Router (Tor) network.
