I’d be interested in chatting about this, if we are looking for victims (I mean, volunteers) or like-minded individuals

Obvious issues:
* some users think it protects them from server-side tracking (actually, servers are unaware)
* some users think it protects them from network sniffing (actually, no changes are made in network behavior)
* some users think they’ll become untraceable/anonymous (actually, only some change is made, and probably not to major fingerprint targets like addresses)
