On Monday we reported Facebook’s announcement that they would be officially supporting users of the Tor browser. Now yet another web giant, this time an open source giant, Mozilla intend to help bring the private browsing network to more people.

In an announcement on their website, the Tor Project confirmed the partnership with Mozilla and the Center of Democracy & Technology, an advocacy group for digital rights. Polaris, as the initiative is called, will help the security and privacy features of Tor get into the hands of more computer users. Mozilla will be able to integrate these features within their namesake browser and Tor will get the support of engineers from Mozilla to help them grow the ultra private network.

As The Next Web points out, Tor can only be accessed by a finite number of connections at once as of now, so this partnership with the added expertise of Mozilla, will no doubt open up the network to more people.
