Description

Per https://panopticlick.eff.org the system fonts and screen size/color depth are by far the biggest pieces of identifying information.

If you could get the most common list of system fonts from the EFF and use that or a small rotating set of common ones, that would be one less thing that could be monitored.

As a broader (optional) feature, perhaps a setting that let your browser window automatically resize by chunking to even numbers and 'standard' sizes instead of allowing things like 1037x824x24.

Panopticlick is not a good test for us as it is biased due to the fingerprints being from non-Tor Browser browsers. We took care of fonts as good as we can and are rounding the windows size to a multiple of 200/100px, so I think all in all this ticket is invalid.
