[liberationtech] Help test the new Tor Browser!

Tested tor-browser-linux32-3.0-alpha-1_en-US from China. UI-wise I agree
with everybody that running just one program is much more intuitive.

I can't connect though. Here's what happens:

1. Try connecting directly. This times out after a long time.
2. Add bridge relays from
3. This also attempts to connect for a long time and then gives up.

Obviously, Tor is targeted by the authorities here and making it work and
easy-to-use is a major challenge. If you pull it off, though, it could make
a big difference. Would love to see it happen. Thanks for your hard work.
