    59Does this mean that the forcing the platform to `Win32` the cpu-class to `Windows NT 6.1`, and the user-agent to have `Windows NT 6.1` does not help increase the size of the anonymity set (mentioned in #9501), since the fonts allow distinguishing between Windows, MacOS, and Linux in any case?
