How safe is UT from trackers?

I personally find that there are too many webapps in the open-store.
That's not there are too many, that's there are too many that no longer works... ^^
But i agree with you, if everyone puts its own webapp that would be the jungle.
Today i searched for playstation webapp, i found one, then i clicked on publisher :
Most of them marked not functionning in coms, for sure it is 2 years old and for 15.04.
Those deprecated webapps (i mean, not only in this link) is not a good thing for openstore user experience.

In partial answer to this question - here's the results of the security test at https://coveryourtracks.eff.org/ for all of the different browsers I have on my Volla Phone, with uAdBlock enabled.
Morph browser ->
Firefox-esr 78 running in Libertine container ->
Roadtrip (alternative QtWebEngine based browser demo from Mateo Salta) ->
Onion (interestingly this one performed the worst in this test, despite being based on Tor, and supposedly providing enhanced security) ->
OnePlus 3T + Morph Browser

@3t_ed there are a bunch of qtwebengine flags we can use to reduce fingerprinting

I think there might be a discrepancy between different devices when it comes to the effectiveness of uAdBlock.
A lot of people have posted screenshots from their phones of the EFF's 'Cover Your Tracks' showing Morph blocking trackers (with the help of uAdBlock). However, I am having no such luck on my Sony Xperia 10.
Here are my screenshots (well they would be screenshots but instead they are photos, as the current build for the Xperia 10 doesn't seem to have MTP working yet).
Morph with uAdBlock:
Onion with uAdBlock:
Does anyone have any ideas as to why there is this discrepancy? Or how it could be solved?

@adlinux - yes, in retesting I am now getting the same results as you!! - not sure what is going on with this - but it is concerning.
@totalsonic I think your uAdBlock is fully disabled even if you think it is activated and shows lists.
It can be the case for an OTA update or if you change of channel.
So first do 'deactivate uAdBlock' and then reactivate it: personally I check all the lists.
But it's right that for the Volla, we have always a NEARLY-unique fingerprint : i don't like this word nearly. This word is too much
@mateo_salta Why did you remove demo browser from the Open Store? Improving it would have been nice but it still has some use as it is for testing I think. Demo browser as a UNIQUE fingerprint!!
