Default EFF: More than 80% of browsers have trackable signatures

According to new research by the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) citizens' rights organisation, more than 80% of web browsers have unique configuration signatures which can be tracked. The organisation says its latest findings show that "an overwhelming majority of web browsers have unique signatures – creating identifiable 'fingerprints' that could be used to track you as you surf the Internet."
