You’re concerned about your online privacy, and you do all the right things to keep from being tracked around the Web: purge your cookies regularly, clean out Flash “supercookies,” even switch to browsers like Browzar, which lets you “search and surf the web without leaving traces on your computer.” Doesn’t matter—your browser is giving you away.

Well yeah, not surprising. Everybody leaves some kind of unique footprint in everything they do both in real life and offline. It’s the really very small diffrences that make us unique. Even cdfreaks does it as you can clearly see in their documentation.

These tons and tons of data can easily be distilled by systems that are doing nothing but crunching algorithms each and every day.
