What information can we access from the client? [closed]

I’m trying to compile a list of information that is accessible via javascript such as:

  • Geo-location
  • IP address
  • Browser software
  • Exit location
  • Entrance location

I understand that a user can alter any of this information and that it’s reliability is purely trust related, but I am still interested in what other information can be mined from the client.

Answer

Don’t forget about

  • Screen Size
  • Allowed Cookies
  • Allowed Java
  • Mobile or Desktop
  • Language

And here is useful link with data-mining demo:
