Arguably, unless you're using BobnJoe's browser, any of the popular ones
should provide sufficient numbers (firefox, safari, opera, ie).

: Spoof http-headers as though a US english browser (browser/privacy proxy?)

Only if you want to appear as coming from the US, and if you read
English.  If you're in UAE and spoofing US English, then you may stand
out for being different.

: Do not:
: Use tabs (enforced/recommended by controller?)


: Keep the browser open when finished 'using tor' (enforced/recommended by 
: controller?)

If your browser properly cleans up and you've disabled everything,
chances are this isn't that big of a deal.
