Vidalia allows you to start and stop Tor, view the status of Tor at a glance, and monitor Tor’s bandwidth usage. Vidalia also makes it easy to contribute to the Tor network by helping you setup a Tor server, if you wish. To find more information about what Tor is and how to use it, see the Tor homepage:
