Your browser fingerprint *appears to be unique* among the 3,545,513 
tested so far.

Currently, we estimate that your browser has a fingerprint that conveys 
*at least 21.76 bits of identifying information.*

The measurements we used to obtain this result are listed below. You can 
read more about our methodology, statistical results, and some defenses 
against fingerprinting in this article
