 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.
