You only need to add (tor-service) to the list of services.  Then tell
your browser to connect to the SOCKS proxy at localhost:9050.  If you
use Epiphany or Eolie that would be done through the network settings
where you can configure GNOME-wide settings.

For Icecat that would be done in Preferences, searching for “proxy”,
hitting “Settings…” and specifying a manual proxy in the “SOCKS Host”
line.  Also check the box next to “Proxy DNS when using SOCKS v5”.
