    I am designing a page, where the user can see, which information can be
    gathered from him/her, when visiting the page. The purpose of the page
    is to let even inexperienced users know as correctly and realistically
    as possible, what any javascript program can find out and what it cannot
    without explicit permissions from him/her.
    Hidden images (1by1pixel images), screen properties, browser
    identification string, cookie contents (i.e time of last visit), where
    and when the user has clicked the mouse, where the mouse has moved and
    when. Keys striked, when. Referrer (which page was looked before coming
    here).
    There might be already such a page in existence. Do you know? If not,
    any ideas how to get a rather reliable and complete list?
    I try to make some pages, which follow user activity. I intend to state
    very clearly, that it is being done and refer to the example page. In
    order not frighten away everyone I need to to give reliable information
    about the situation. E.g. the javascript code is openly visible for
    them, without obfuscation.
