Some notes on web tracking and related mechanisms

Artur Janc and I put together a nice, in-depth overview of all the known fingerprinting and tracking vectors that appear to be present in modern browsers. This is an interesting, polarizing, and poorly-studied area; my main hope is that the doc will bring some structure to the discussions of privacy consequences of existing and proposed web APIs - and help vendors and standards bodies think about potential solutions in a more holistic way.

That's it - carry on!
