    • Seguay into 1928….what?

    • Choose between security and anonymity because it’s pretty hard to get both
    • Web requests need to contain some information such as user agent, the requested resource, maybe the referer. But, do we really need to make things like system fonts, screen resolution and a list of plugins?
    • After disabling Javascript, almost no information was sent. But, my browser became unique to 1 in 1,200 vice 1 in 250,000 with Javascript running.
    • The TAILS Live CD Tor browser gave up more information, but that actually helped with anonymity because it made my browser more normal.
