LXer: Trying to prevent browser fingerprinting? The odds are against you

Published at LXer:

So despite all the browser tools and options that can be deployed and tweaked to give a browser a less unique fingerprint, nothing seems to make any real difference. And from what Iíve seen so far, the more plugins installed and the more options enabled/disabled, the more unique your browser becomes. Itís like getting your phone? number on a ďDo Not CallĒ list.
