18.24. I think that's the highest you can go?

I'm thinking the language packs/addons I have installed are what make my browser stand out like that.

Heh, I just ran a second test and this time I have a higher number for some reason.

Strangely, Chrome and FF give me the same number. I thought FF would rank much higher.

I guess the chances of being "not unique" when you have multiple plug-ins downloaded is pretty low to be honest.

my standard windows vista fonts apparently are so unique that only 1 in 300000+ people have them?

AdminG Beee January 30 2010 12:18 PM EST

Probably correct Shade. 1/300000 Vista users ?

AdminShade January 30 2010 12:24 PM EST

In which I'm the only Vista (or Vista 64 bits) user which has been on that website so far? hmmm

AdminG Beee January 30 2010 12:46 PM EST

Several hundred million users with Vista. 1/300000 isn't surprisingly small or large.

That said, I have no idea where this website gets it's info from. Who knows what it's output actually means in terms of relevance to the price of baked beans at your local superstore. :)

I've got the highest numbers, so far ^.-

I'm easier to distinguish from the rest, too, due to my identifying bits of information. Thats probably not a good thing, though...

So their database has had more than 25% increase in less than the past 12 hours? This must be pretty new.
