My aim is to be treated like other normal internet users, regardless of the orientation of my monitor. Since I use portrait 1080p monitor, my browser is very easy to categorize, sites show me very specific ads even after using VPN and disabling third party cookies. How do I spoof a common resolution?
In exact words: I need my browser to report a common resolution like 768x1024, even if that breaks apart HTML layout. Surely most websites will work just fine.
Not good solutions:
- Tor Browser: The websites will categorize me as security conscious user, many sites will even ban me. I might even mistakenly maximize the tor window!
- Change browser's window size/viewport size/zoom level: This website shows 1080x1920 resolution regardless window size/viewport size/zoom level.
- Change DPI/resolution from windows: Other applications start acting crazy.
- Protect privacy using scripts: I don't want to break functionality of website that depend on ads. I just want to be treated as a normal user who does not have any kind of privacy protection.
My own solution: Buy a new monitor (1920x1080p) and keep the browser window inside this new monitor at all times.
