No surprises here.
Despite the uproar from various ad agencies and such, it looks like when it came to rethinking its decision to enable the “Do Not Track” header by default, Microsoft did not flinch for a second.
According to the official Internet Explorer blog post, customers launching IE10 for the first time will be greeted with a welcome page that includes instructions on how to disable the “Do Not Track” signal.
As they said, “We believe that meeting customer expectations by putting people first is the best way to grow online commerce and the Internet economy. Our commitment is to provide Windows customers an experience that is “private by default” in an era when so much user data is collected online. IE10 is the first browser to send a “Do Not Track” (DNT) signal by default.”
