Every time when you access to a website, you are exposing some of your browsing data through whatever browser you are using to that website. For example, at the time you are reading this post, we have actually successfully collected some of your data as part of our traffic states. But don’t be panic, none of these data will be harmful to you. Take it easy.
However, Even though there are nothing seriously sensitive, are you aware how much of them your browser is revealing during your surf time? Or are you curious how these traffic stats services like Google Analytics collect these data?
1. the connection data, e.g. IP address, server port, encryption, etc..
2. HTTP headers, including the referrer, user-agent (browser), etc.
3. Cookies, whether your browser will be accepting or sending the cookies.
5. Your browser even tells your local time, the resolution of your screen, and the size of the browser window.
Note that because different browser has its own identity and configuration, accessing the link from different browsers provides a little bit different result. Give it a try out and you might find the result interesting.
