Out of dated information

Article need to updated. Some comdline arguments no longer support in the chromium. See more - http://peter.sh/experiments/chromium-command-line-switches/

Just go ahead and remove the out-dated material.

Mount /home/<USER>/.cache as tmpfs isn't a good idea

It causes slow xorg startup (blank screen) on the first time (reboot), since cpu intensive cache like fontconfig is there. May have other side effects difficult of isolate/debug. Fmatheus (talk) 15:48, 4 November 2014 (UTC)

gotta disagree with you. I have been using this setup for a long time without any blank screen or delay as you reported. Additionally, I find no evidence of fontconfig in this dir.

Well, in a year all we've had is two opposing anecdotes - closing. -- Alad (talk) 17:09, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

User Agent

I've noticed that changing the user agent as suggested, using chromium flags, actually has the reversed effect i.e. you become "more" unique vs. not using this flag. Therefore be sure you test both variants... Archydan (talk) 13:38, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

Also, its worth keeping in mind that methods other than User Agents are involved in Fingerprinting, "The site you are visiting may choose to analyze your browser using JavaScript, Flash and other methods. It may look for what types of fonts you have installed, the language you’ve set, the add-ons you’ve installed, and other factors."
