Google Chrome Will Support Do Not Track

By | February 29, 2012

Google Chrome Will Support Do Not TrackWith all the privacy and tracking talks going on, it looks like Google will finally be joining the ranks of other web browsers who support Do Not Track feature.

Introduced years ago, Do Not Track allows users to opt out of tracking by advertising, social and other web sites that enjoy such data.

However, it’s not coming anytime soon, according to the report, Google Chrome is likely to introduce Do Not Track feature by the end of this year, which is 8-10 months away.

Susan Wojcicki, Google’s senior vice president said, “This agreement will not solve all the privacy issues users face on the Web today. However, it represents a meaningful step forward in privacy controls for users. We look forward to making this happen.”

    Seems like they misspelled it. Actually it is a “Do not let others than Google track me” button.

     I don’t see what the issue with all this tracking is. It keeps thing free, doesn’t it?
