 > Yes, Tor users should be uniform: between each other and among users of
 "real" browsers.

 It's probably not feasible to blend into, say, users of Chrome as the
 differences are too big. The goal is to make *Tor Browser* users uniform.

 Looking at Panopticlick is exactly for the above reasons not a good idea:
 it contains non-Tor Browser data as well which is skewing the result.
