Comment (by qSKvY):

 So on the volunteer page it says that you'd like to have a machine
 readable interface to the fingerprinting service, such as JSON.
 What kind of information would you like to include in that?
 I mean obviously you want to have the fingerprint details. A barebones
 JSON interface would be like:

     "useragent":"Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:38.0) Gecko/20100101
 gzip, deflate en-AU,en;q=0.7,en-US;q=0.3"

 Do you want to include other data such as how many other browsers have the
 same fingerprint or the same fingerprint property?

 Anything else you want to include?

 I assume a CAPTCHA would be out of the question (I've been experimenting
 with fingerprinting people and browsers through CAPTCHAs lately).
