A nice and simple one, that the browser tells the server in the header 
what timezone or time-offset the user is in.

There are no privacy issues with this and it enables web pages and cloud 
apps to show correct times to the user on a page load without having to 
do Ajax calls.

This could alternatively be in the form of the browser sending an ISO 
8601 date and time it sent it's request.

No trees were killed in the sending of this message...however a large number of electrons were terribly inconvenienced.
