Microsoft will disable the “Do Not Track” option by default in future browsers. Users will have to enable the setting manually if they don’t want to be tracked.

At least the option to disable tracking is still there…
Those who are really concerned about their privacy will manually check their settings anyway…:iagree:

I rarely use IE anyway .
In Opera I think I had to check “Do Not Track”.
It was a while back but I think default was unchecked.

Even with Do Not Track, the user will still be tracked, as there are many websites that refuse to honor this preference. I would recommend using something like EFF’s "Privacy Badger to prevent these sites from communicating with your browser in the first place. I’m blocking 4 trackers with it right now (plus 5 more with Disconnect).
