Fingerprinting isn't about identifying the same session (there are
cookies for that), but about recognizing you on your next visit when
you come from a different IP/exit (or even the same)

Screen/Window size spoofing is pointless as there are many ways of finding
out the actual window size. And colors are pretty much always 24bit anyway.
