Firefox to Include Do Not Track FeatureFollows Internet Explorer.

Mozilla’s chief executive, Gary Kovacs while talking about Firefox 4 in Mountain View, California addressed user privacy issues and promised to deliver “Do Not Track” button in the first part of next year.

“The idea of ‘Do Not Track’ is interesting, but there doesn’t seem to be consensus on what ‘tracking’ really means, nor how new proposals could be implemented in a way that respects people’s current privacy controls,” said Google.
