Is it unfair to say that, properly used and in the context given in the
graphic (using HTTP(S) websites), there is no known adversary that can
associate them with their browsing? I'm not a full-time PET researcher,
but smarter people than myself in this thread seem to think the GPA is
more of a myth than a reality.

Yes, the GPA is in every paper, but what you put in papers is different
from what you put in introductory material.
