"browser fingerprint can simply leak passively"

I do sometimes wonder just why the browser gives up so much data to the web sites. Why does the site need to know my screen resolution, browser window dimensions, list of installed typefaces, CPU type and family etc? The browser does the rendering, not the site owner.
