Of course, DNT doesn't actually do anything - all it does is politely tell advertisers not to track you. It doesn't actually stop them.

It's funny that they waited a while to do this though, when the 'Keep My Opt-Outs' addon has been available for quite a while now.

Can somebody please answer me why I should really care if they track me? Google makes money off of selling advertising places and give me ads catered to my preferences. I don't see these ads though, due to adblock. I like Google as a company, should I not provide them a source of income for the money they spend providing such excellent applications?

[citation][nom]phyco126[/nom]I'm still waiting for a do not track feature that prevents ISPs from tracking you too...[/citation]
Unfortunately TOR or a secure tunnel to a 3rd party proxy is the only way to do this, afaik.

Opera offers Turbo mode as a proxy, I wonder why other browsers don't do this as well, only instead of using it for reducing bandwidth, use it for protection against snooping ISPs.

I don't think this plugin will make any difference. Can it really protect your privacy? I doubt it.
How about making a "Do not crash" plus? LoL.
My chrome do crash sometimes although not very often. But it's still one of my main browsers(I still have ie9,firefox and Avant browser).Like it fast speed and simple interface.

I think if they let me turn on or off tracking, i will allow them to track me after all (unless ofc i want to do something bad :D). After all, i dont care what flashy ADs i get to see in my browser while im reading an article.

If we even get something thanks to that... well, i knew i liked the internet for some reason, but damn...
