CloudFlare is a company that helps people and companies all over the world keep their websites online in a way that makes those sites quickly accessible and secure. There’s been a dust-up recently between CloudFlare and The Onion Router, or TOR project. TOR is the set of tools that helps people use the internet anonymously — good guys and bad guys. CloudFlare has made it more difficult for TOR users to access sites it hosts.

Matthew Prince is CEO of CloudFlare, and spoke with us Friday.
