Browser fingerprinting is the act of extracting different pieces of information from your browser and piecing it together to form a unique id that represents you on the web. Marketing and advertising firms use this to track you even without cookies and even when your not logged in.
Shape shifter allows you to stop this kind of tracking. Shape shifter makes certain requests for data return common and consistent results meaning you can blend in with others who have the same settings/configuration. An example of this is the user agent header which uses the same value as the TOR browser. For things that are hard to give a default value such as canvas fingerprinting, the value is changed on a session by session basis.
