problem and was wondering if anybody has tried to randomize
More specifically, change part of the header for each request.
An obvious option is to add a counter to the "user-agent", and to add
a "blur" factor to the language options.
E.g. my "en-us,fr-ch;q=0.8,es-ar;q=0.6,en;q=0.4,de;q=0.2" appears to be very
rare, but if it keeps changing from
then a naive fingerprinting will be fooled into thinking it's coming
from a different user.
