Browser Fingerprinting

No Comments

I've just been pointed at the Panopticlick by the Electronic Frontier Foundation. The site is attempting to build a fingerprint on your browser over publicly available informations. Some are derived from the transmitted HTTP headers (such as User-Agent and Accept,) others are collected via JavaScript (like screen resolution, plugin collection and installed fonts.) It's quite interesting: Using the Opera Webbrowser, I seem to be unique among 812,096 collected fingerprints, so far. Mostly thanks to my collection of plugins and fonts.
