    Hi, I was wondering if using Guest Mode in Chrome OS does anything to prevent browser fingerprinting or tracking from session to session? So if you go into Guest Mode and browse for awhile and then exit Guest Mode. Then go back into Guest Mode can the various trackers from ads, Facebook, Google etc tell it is the same browser as before so track you across sessions? I am guessing they can and using guest mode like that does nothing to prevent fingerprinting but I was not sure. Thanks.

    I think you need to edit the browser while in Guest Mode, then logoff-login, and see if the changes are still there.

    You do know that everything you do on Chrome goes to Google servers, right?
