[tor-talk] Spoofing a browser profile to prevent fingerprinting

Sorry, I forgot to say: it's not operational, it was working but I 
stopped it after a crowdfunding campaign which turned to be a flop, 
meaning that nobody cares.

But the concepts still stand, even if complicate, the requirements were 
that it should work without disturbing the browser's behavior or hacking 
into it (so it works from any browser) and the basic principles were 
that there was no point of tracking you on a fake domain, here it does 
not really depend on how many people are using it, you just behave like 
a normal user on a non existing domain.

An issue was that people need to set the proxy settings to the server 
that is relaying the data, so not very user friendly...

Probably the video demo was more self explainatory, I will put it back 
on yt and provide the link

I think now that it was too complicate but maybe some inspiration can 
come from it.
