These two internet news outlets discuss how the popularity of a dark web internet browser (Tor) has gained tremendous amounts of popularity since 2013.

“The US witnessed a jump of over 50,000 users from 100,000 to 150,000; the UK witnessed a nearly 100 per cent jump from 175,000 to 350,000; and Germany registered a rise to 880,000 from 450,000.”

Information in the text reflect back to the Snowden leaks, which is the bases for the spike in popularity and is what made me think of my research topic to begin with.
