The Pirate Bay recently celebrated their 10th anniversary. The infamous peer-to-peer torrent tracking site posted on their blog that they did not think they would make it this far, but they did.
In celebration of their 10th anniversary, The Pirate Bay launched PirateBrowser, a modified version of Firefox, in hopes to help users bypass censorship to, of course, their site.
PirateBrowser has been specifically configured to allow users to access blocked sites and circumvent censorship in countries such as Iran, North Korea, United Kingdom, The Netherlands, Belgium, Finland, Denmark, Italy and Ireland impose onto their citizens.
PirateBrowser is based on the workings of Firefox Portable bundled with the Tor (Vidalia) onion proxy client as well as the Foxyproxy Firefox browser add-on extension.

PirateBrowser warns that the browser does not enable users to stay anonymous while browsing the web and blocked sites. As they state on their new site:
[...]this browser is intended just to circumvent censorship — to remove limits on accessing websites your government doesn't want you to know about.
TorrentFreak reports this browser is currently only available on Windows, but Mac and Linux versions are on its way. Windows users can download the setup file directly from their site or have torrented.
