I have an interest in a web browsing privacy issue. I'm having trouble finding information about it, because most information is aimed at people who don't want someone else to look on their computer and find where they've been.


What I want to do is have some measure of hiding my identity from the website server. Many sites like this will require cookies and prevent connections from Tor. So I wonder if there is a slightly less secure but still beneficial thing---can I prevent them from tracking me, i.e. recognizing that I've been to their site (or others they track) in the past? 


I am thinking that I want to delete cookies and use a VPN to change up my IP address, but I wonder if there are other means that websites can use to try to track repeat visits.
