small prog to modify portable Opera and portable Firefox
« on: November 03, 2013, 10:28:27 PM »
Hi,

    internet privacy and anonymity is a problem these days.  was wondering if its possible to code a small program that takes existing folder of Firefox portable and/or Opera portable and makes slight changes to to the setup, like some minor extensions added or removed, a random user agent selected, random (lesser used) fonts added or removed - each of these things would make it more difficult for the tracking and profiling companies to get an accurate browser fingerprint.  in effect you would appear to have a unique and random and disposable browser each time you surfed the web.

yes, i use secret agent in firefox but its not enough.

seems like it wouldn't be too difficult to take an existing copy of opera or firefox portable and also download and store the extension xpi files locally (noscript, request policy, cookie monster, ghostery etc etc), store the user agents locally (iirc one usr agent ext help website has a file of thousands to choose from - just store it locally and let the program select one randomly for each browser built), have a few different user.js and prefs.js files and then have a program that spits out numerous disposable copies of these portable browsers.
