> The Private User Agent Community Group has been proposed:
> --------------------------------------------------
> The Private User Agent Community Group is chartered to improve user
> privacy and user control by designing the User Agent to minimize
> fingerprinting and to improve the control the user has over information
> shared over the Web and to improve the security of the User Agent in
> these regards.  The group seeks to standardize the designs necessary to
> achieve these goals, to develop extensions designed for privacy to
> mitigate inevitable losses of functionality, to foster consideration of
> privacy in the design of other Web standards, and to discuss and develop
> implementations and test suits.  Mechanisms for expressing user privacy
> preferences to servers and content provides are outside the scope of
> this group.
> --------------------------------------------------
> You are invited to support the creation of this group:
>  http://www.w3.org/community/groups/proposed#pua
> Once the group has a total of five supporters, W3C launch the group
> and people can join to begin work.
> In order to join the group, you will need a W3C account. To request one:
>  http://www.w3.org/community/account/request
> If you believe that there is an issue with this group that requires
> the attention of the W3C staff, please send us email on
> site-comments@w3.org.
> Thank you,
