First set `w3m-add-user-agent' to t, which is default:

  (setq w3m-add-user-agent t)

and visit [1].

Then set it to nil

  (setq w3m-add-user-agent nil)

and visit [1] again. See?

They do fingerprinting with cookies, JavaScript, HTML
canvas (which uses JavaScript), and the User-Agent field
in the HTTP request.

Because JavaScript isn't an issue with Emacs-w3m, what
remain are cookies and the HTTP request, thus

  (setq w3m-add-user-agent nil)
  (setq w3m-use-cookies nil)

Right? :)
