    And sb.scorecardresearch.com is tracking site visitors ;)

    The actual paper: http://randomwalker.info/publications/OpenWPM_1_million_site_tracking_measurement.pdf

    And the paper doesn't have much to say about defense against tracking. It doesn't mention compartmentalization or compartmentation. And although they used AWS VMs in testing, to give them multiple fingerprint sets, they don't explicitly mention using VMs to defend against tracking. Sad :(
