  • User input behaviour (e.g. answering the CAPTCHA question, input speed in the form fields, order in which the user selects the input fields) 
  • Browser, browser size and resolution, browser plugins, date, language setting
  • Presentation instructions (CSS) and scripts (Javascript) of the website
