I note that a Java applet needs to be run for this fingerprinting
scheme to work.
How toc circumvent this technique? Create a browser option or plug-in
that randomises some of the metrics as used by the fingerprint, e.g.
! Browser Plugin Details
! Screen Size and Color Depth
! System Fonts
* Time Zone
* Cookies Enabled
! = quite feasible by adding random details to the metric
* = perhaps but may affect browser functions
