Chrome To Support Do Not Track Privacy Feature

It looks like Google is finally getting on the Do Not Track bandwagon. The company says it will have the feature in place by the end of the year.

We have always thought the idea of DNT was interesting, but there didn't seem to be a wide consensus on what "tracking" really means. We didn't feel it was responsible to allow users to send a header in Chrome that largely had no effect and no agreed-upon meaning. Going forward, the scope is now clear, and we know that the header will be respected by the industry.
