 This project is to re-evaluate what buttons we are going to place in the
 toolbar, and what purposes they would serve. We've been having an ongoing
 discussion of it here: https://pad.riseup.net/p/toolbar-torbrowser.

 We're trying to fix the following problems:
 * user confusion with what settings is global and what is for a tab
 * all features are hidden under one icon or under the security preferences
 (which is buried)
 * the settings overlap and need to be used together (security slider +
 noscript), which is hard
 * in general, the buttons at the top (NoScript, torbutton) are confusing
 * the buttons don't have a 1:1 corespondence with what users need

 This project was inspired by Nina's document that proposes changes to the
 Tor Browser toolbar,
 ([https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/21183 ticket]
 [https://share.riseup.net/#a147BiCUXfeCQ3ezzgFkag pdf of suggested
 changes]. Not all the proposed changes are good ideas, but were good to
 spark discussion.
