What does your browser tell about you

This has been talked about in a few places the past 2 days, but it is a good topic for excess info and what it tells about you. I'm pretty sure someone did something on this before, but maybe not.

Anyway, some good research to look at about how unique your browser really is and how it can be used to track back to you. This is due to plugins, cookies and other things.

A good way to block it are:
TorButton, NoScript or other Java Script blocking tools, or a bunch of corporate cloned machines! I'm sure there were other things, that is what I recall from my quick read the other day.

The main paper can be found here.
