Tor Browser is available not only for Windovs, but also for other operating systems, including the Mac. Installation is simple. Simply download the Tor installer file for Mac (resolution - .dmg) and save it to your computer. After you just need to open the downloaded file and place it in the application folder. Now you have a fully installed Tor browser application.
Then it all depends on why you are going to use Tor-network. If you need only the anonymous visiting of web pages, then it is enough to install a browser just once. Tor is very easy to install, configure, and more confidential than other browsers. But if you want to use the SOCKS as well - the exchange of instant messages Jabber, IRC and others – then in the Tor-network, you also need to specify your application - the local port 9050.
Vidalia is a graphical shell for the Tor system. Interface is clear, corresponds to all Linux traditions, so that you will not have any problems with the program. Third-party applications are configured by inscribing SOCKS5 proxy in them with reference to the IP address 127.0.0.1 and port 9050, that means on your computer.

Let's consider the principle of using the application on Adium example. You run Vidalia, and there’s an automatic connection to the Tor-network. This may take several minutes, and then the application icon in the dock lights up green. This means the connection. Now you only need to configure the application - in this case, Adium. Open the account settings, select the appropriate and click mouse on changes.
Select a proxy server tab and launch it as follows: type - the SOCKS, server - 127.0.0.1, port - 9050, the fields "username" and "password" are not filled, enter a check near the inscriptions "connect using proxy" and "connect at start”. Click “ok” and restart Adium. Now it will work through Tor. By the same principle all applications are configured. As you can see, the Tor configuration for Mac OS is very simple, and you get to opportunity to be incognito on the expanses of the Internet with no worries about being traced.
