Or alternatively...

Allow me to set user agent text that is used.

Allow me to disable / whitelist* transmission of various information, be it screen height, installed plugins etc.

i.e. give me a bit of control over what my browser tells web sites about me then I can stop fingerprinting as just end up with lots of people disabling everything possible and using reagreed user agent string and fingerprinting privacy is done..

* I'm sure there's now a PC alternative for this - if you have one then mentally replace my terminology with it as all these new replacement terms just don't lodge in my memory as I'm too old & my memory is crap these days.
