What else is new?
ANA, the Associate of National Advertisers, which covers companies like Intel, Visa and other giants, has sent a letter to Microsoft’s CEO, Steve Ballmer and few other executives, asking the company to change the default IE10 behavior, which protects the consumers and advertisers.
Interestingly enough, they claim that Microsoft is not giving users the choice or as they say, “When presented as a default ‘on,’ by design Microsoft is no longer creating a choice of whether or not data about consumers will be tracked. Rather, Microsoft appears determined to stop the collection of Web viewing data. That is unacceptable. “
This follows the recent Apache decision who issued a patch to override IE’s “Do Not Track” setting.
If you are curious to read the whole letter, head over to the following page and get your dose of daily Internet drama.
And the saga continues as we await for the Microsoft to respond.
