Please, avast! friends, test your browser with Device Fingerprint here: http://noc.to/

Great tools, great info...what information my/your  browser is leaking to websites, be aware.
Every user of Ghostery will like like this site.

Mostly accurate, but some of their info is way out of date.  They show my ISP provider as Golden Triangle, which was bought out by Execulink something like 5 or 6 years ago ... the "Golden" name hasn't been used since then with one exception:  they retained the golden.net domain strictly for email, so users wouldn't have to change their addys.
(Edit) Was all but that first bit from me one sentence?? Sorry about that.  :-[

Hi MikeBCda,

Well the geolocation coordinates are precise and that means they can very precisely pinpoint your wifi router connection or your smartphone location etc.. Without the geo-location active they cannot get further than the ISP access point wherever that may be. Nevertheless your tranparency is growing the better and more refined device fingerprinting becomes.

See: http://www.nlnetlabs.nl/projects/dnssec-trigger/
Dnssec-trigger reconfigures the local unbound DNS server. This unbound DNS server performs DNSSEC validation, but dnssec-trigger will signal it to to use the DHCP obtained forwarders if possible, and fallback to doing its own AUTH queries if that fails, and if that fails prompt the user via dnssec-trigger-applet the option to go with insecure DNS only.

This software is experimental at this time.
Info & link credits and go to "Erwtensoep".
