 > This is great. I noticed a bug in the font detection in fingerprintjs2,
 which I have reported there:
 Thanks. I updated the code for that test.

 > On thing that might be interesting is to look at CSS-only fingerprinting
 techniques, because users often disable JS in Tor Browser. Tor Browser
 protects against quite a lot of CSS attacks, but it's possible more
 protection is needed. I did one such experiment here:
 That's a neat test. I'd be interested in modifying it and putting it on my
 site, if you don't mind.
 Do you have a way of reporting the results back to the server?
 I think reporting the results back to the server without using JS is a big
 hurdle, but if it was possible a CSS-only fingerprinting attack would be
 very powerful.
