    Chameleon is a privacy extension for Chrome that detects and protects against browser fingerprinting. It currently makes Chrome appear like the Tor Browser but does not fully protect against fingerprinting techniques such as canvas fingerprinting. Chameleon detects font enumeration and intercepts access to fingerprinting-related JavaScript objects. It attempts to blend in by altering request headers and JavaScript properties to match Tor Browser's values. The extension is still in pre-alpha stage and is intended for developers only. Future plans include blocking scripts based on fingerprinting techniques and expanding coverage.
