    I'm calling bullshit on the number of "unique tests" cause I tested mine five hours AFTER you and got "Your browser fingerprint appears to be unique among the 797,428 tested so far."

    We are all unique because the fonts we have installed are out of the norm range everyone
    else falls into - those who just use MS products.

    The point is..

    They can track you because of a certain arrangement of items on your hard drive. They can track you because of your unique fingerprint revealed by your browser.

    So does that mean to keep from being tracked I should install a new font every week?
