Oh? Here [dev.w3.org] is the spec. Where do you see that? Again, while it can find your location: 1) it only does that if you give it permission 2) it can be turned off 3) your cell phone does the same yet you don't complain about it.
Sufficient data IS collected that will uniquely identify the system (computer, laptop, mobile phone)
@frontpage, IE does the same, or similar, and sends data to Microsoft with both IE and Windows. How else do you get update notices? I guarantee they send far more information than Firefox or Chrome or Google can even access.
