Maybe I did not understand it correctly in spite of reading through
the thread, so forgive me if I am repeating something or am incorrect.

The current default for some browsers in Debian informs webmasters
about which browser is being used. The user can, naturally, change it
to suit his/her needs. How does merely using this string to track hits
to DDG (with no changes to the default user-agent) change anything for
the user? They can track us anyway, right now, right?


Be warned that typing \fBkillall \fIname\fP may not have the desired
effect on non-Linux systems, especially when done by a privileged user.
