I've drafted an update:


* Instead of recommending different bundles for users on shared
computers and users on their own computers, recommend the Tor Browser
Bundle for everyone. This makes the guide a lot simpler.

* Hotmail now supports HTTPS, is no longer suitable because
it requires an existing email address to set up a free account, Riseup
makes you wait for manual approval unless you have an invitation code.

* WordPress no longer emails you a temporary password when you activate
your account.

* Turned the last section into a subsection - no need to clean up after
Firefox if you use the browser bundle.

* Made various things shorter.

Please feel free to pick any changes you like and ignore the rest.
