"As of 2017, the flash proxy project is deprecated. It was deployed in Tor Browser between 2013 and 2016, but has since been superseded by newer and more effective pluggable transports. If you want to help support a newer circumvention system designed along the same principles as flash proxy, please see Snowflake (https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/Snowflake)."

I'm repurposing this ticket. We should research how useful this might be.

Let's wait for Tor Browser to ship Snowflake.

Update:

  • Snowflake is in Tor Browser alpha
  • The upstream ticket is tagged "Sponsor28-must" so there's a chance this gets into Tor Browser stable at some point.
