    which is why its better to use a dedicated tool for blocking tracking scripts rather than relying on the browser and hope that websites would respect it out of good of their hearts LOL.

    Really, you'll never prevent tracking. Or, at least, you'll never know for sure whether you have or not. Just use VMs and VPNs/Tor, and compartmentalize. It's the only way to be sure ;)

    I notice in the testimony linked to by the CNET article that he seems to have significant interest in the so called "de-identification" approach.

    There are a slew of issues with the non-underlined portion, but it is the portion I underlined that worries me the most.
