[Done] Tor Browser related (Moved to github)

  1. Is it possible for Update Check to run everytime we run TBB? Will it take too much time?

  2. Is it possible to display download speed (kb/s) and remaining time (m:s) when downloading Tor Browser?

  3. Is it possbile to display site location "Downloading Tor Browser from $ActualDownloadURL

1. Is it possible for Update Check to run everytime we run TBB? Will it take too much time?
Possible in theory. Would take a few seconds. check.tpo may not be reachable at some times. Not implemented. TBB checks its own version at reasonable intervals. You'll be informed by a blinking TorButton icon when it's outdated.
2. Is it possible to display download speed (kb/s) and remaining time (m:s) when downloading Tor Browser?
In terminal by using: update-torbrowser --ordinary
3. Is it possbile to display site location "Downloading Tor Browser from $ActualDownloadURL
In terminal by using: update-torbrowser

Can 2 & 3 be made default in GUI? IMO better than just “Downloading. Please wait”.

2 would be a nice new feature. I don’t know how to implement it. Possible to implement in theory, of course. I would be happy if someone could contribute it.

3 I see this as an unnecessary additional information that may add confusion, I am happy to hear arguments why that would be useful, though. It could be made available by a simple patch and new optional setting in /etc/whonix.d, whatever that would be worth. Perhaps adding a details button that expands the details would be useful, but then again, I don’t know how to implement it. Possible to implement in theory, of course. I would be happy if someone could contribute it.
