What is Privacy Possum?
Privacy Possum makes tracking you less profitable. Companies gobble up data about you to create an asymmetry of information that they leverage for profit in ever expanding ways. Their profit comes from your informational disadvantage. Privacy Possum monkey wrenches common commercial tracking methods by reducing and falsifying the data gathered by tracking companies.

Does essentially the same thing, except it's open source and it also falsifies the info trackers are attempting to gather.
The browser fingerprint will change each time the browser is fingerprinted. The fingerprint result is also a spoiled fingerprint, so that it is not worth it anymore to track you based on the uniqueness of your browser.
