In their study, currently a pre-review publication at arXiv, the researchers (Johan Mazel of the National Institute of Informatics in Tokyo, Richard Garnier at the National School of Computer Science and Applied Mathematics of Grenoble (ENSIMAG) and Kensuke Fukuda) took existing privacy footprint techniques, but added an evaluation of HTML quality to test various blockers' impact on site usability.

The list of systems tested included both blocklist-based products, heuristic systems, as well as other techniques.
