Default VPS and browser fingerprinting


Based on replies to a post earlier, I have decided to use a VPS.

However, I still have one major concern: while OS, IP, carrier, etc are not a concern, is "browser fingerprinting" still a concern when using a VPS?

Anyone had issues or experience with this?

Do different VPS's have different fingerprints for their installs of Firefox, for example?

Or do most VPS's simply do a stock install of Firefox? (Or is the install of Firefox left up to the end user of the VPS?)

These plug-ins for Firefox privacy were mentioned on SlashGeek.net:
* Ghostery
* NoScript
* AdBlock Plus
... for additional privacy and anonymity.

Any thoughts on these?

Thanks again in advance for any input.

Browser fingerprinting *can* be an issue whether one uses a VPS, or if using from home, etc.

Look into utilizing portable browsers (stand alone browsers on your PC).

Can you share which VPS service you use and how you set it up?
