Anonymize user agent

I was browsing youtube on incognito window. Then I noticed youtube was suggesting me partially personalized content. I checked my request and noticed that HTTP request was sending my “personalized” language on “accept-language”. I’m worrying that with the combination of my IP-address and known user language, web pages could identify me, since the accept language is very uncommon in our region.

Another question. How could i anonymize myself more from the others? My user agent shows, that I’m using chrome. Could I change it to the most common user agent that exists? What else could I do?

There is a User Agent Switcher add-on that may help. Although personally I see this as something of a losing battle. There are just too many techniques for fingerprinting including things like fonts and screen resolution.
