Hello Charles,

The Do Not Track feature in internet explorer is a preference that enables users to set the web browsers in a manner that enabled them to inform websites that they do not want to be tracked, a feature that is very crucial as well as  Mozilla Firefox .

You will not find a single definition of what it means to be "tracked," today, therefore expressing a preference will not be a guarantee to the users that they can successfully block all web sites the kind of method of tracking protection that is very effective for them.

Regards,

Carl

It is a new security feature that Microsoft announced to support in its Internet Explorer 9 web browser in december 2010 This feature was originally proposed in 2009 by researchers Christopher Soghoian, Sid Stamm, and Dan Kaminsky and now It is currently being standardized by the W3C It is currently supported by Mozilla's Firefox, Apple's Safari.

And Opera unfortunately, It is not currently supported by Google Chrome, but will be incorporated into it by the end of 2012 It is an HTTP header field that would request a web application to disable their tracking relics of a user and The default behavior is to not send the header to that web application, until the users chooses to enable this setting via their browsers Regards
