Every computer installation is different even when the user is running the same browser on the same operating system.

This object can compute a fingerprint value of the computer that the user is using by rendering a text value on canvas object and taking a CRC checksum value of the canvas pixel values.

This can be used to distinguish different users without require the user to identify himself.
