    We still have to try, right? One of my counter measures is to use numerous TBB browser bundles behind VPNs. Each unique site has its own TBB and all activity stays within that one bundle package. They may be on the same linux Desktop but the bundles do a great job of segregating usage. I am hoping that IF a website gathers any info during my surfing around it will only display that I visit that one site, and via rotating IP's via TOR.
