Comment (by cypherpunks):

 Replying to [comment:38 cypherpunks]:
 > There are many ways to identify its users. I'm against adding uBO to
 TBB. This will make unique fingerprint if the user choose filterlist their
 own and download them from the 3rd party server.
 > Instead, bundle the "lite" blocklist to TBB itself. Lite-list will block
 some ads so 99.9999% user will not disable it. By bundle it to TBB, it
 will NEVER make a connection to the outside. Fingerprints will be the same
 because everyone use same list.

 Please see my comments on [comment:33 comment 33] on why this isn't a good
 idea, and a possible solution for clearing custom settings to uBO.
