Firefox to add Tor Browser anti-fingerprinting technique called letterboxing  ↦

Called “letterboxing,” this new technique adds “gray spaces” to the sides of a web page when the user resizes the browser window, which are then gradually removed after the window resize operation has finished.

This appears to be a major win for privacy advocates. It also seems like a chink in the armor of Chrome’s dominance, given that many people have lost trust in its privacy model.
