    1818> I sympathize with your intention here. This sounds good. But you said nothing about the very important point I raised about the ineffectiveness of just focusing on history, cookies and cache. If Tor Browser were to clear those while leaving the rest of the state in place, the result is that correlation has only been made harder for some of the less resourceful adversaries. This would only lead to an unwarranted sense of security. Hence why I would call it security theater.

    20 The intent of this ticket is to do exactly the same as new identity, but on a URL bar domain granularity. What correlation can be done if all session state associated with an URL bar domain is properly cleared when it is closed? What is that rest of the state you are talking about?
     20The intent of this ticket is to do exactly the same as new identity for closed URL bar domains (open ones can obviously hang onto state, even if things like cookies are cleared). What correlation can be done if all session state associated with an URL bar domain is properly cleared when it is closed? What is that rest of the state you are talking about?
