Fluxfonts is a unique privacy tool that thwarts system fingerprinting based on the selection of fonts installed on the system. Generates and cycles through new random fonts several times per hour to ensure the same fingerprint cannot be recreated. Supplementary to other measurements against being globally unique identified.

Effective in web browsers, plug-ins, and stand-alone applications that have access to a list of the fonts on the system. Runs as a background daemon.
Requirements
Intel, Mac OS X 10.8 or later

Wow, go to . Just my web plugins make me unique among the entire two-million-plus submissions so far. My fonts are unique only in about 1.6 million browsers... Crazy. I will definitely check Fluxfonts out.

As am I, but I can't test this app because I'm still running SL.

This software seems to be a promising solution to a problem that I wasn't even aware of. I sure would like to try it out. On my computer, however, the installer just gives an error message »Installation failed«. (10.7.5)
