IE9 with do-not-track option released

The latest version of Internet Explorer, version 9, was released Tuesday with a much-discussed tool that allows users to opt out of having their web surfing monitored. In December, the Federal Trade Commission suggested browser manufacturers adopt such a capability as a means of safeguarding consumers' online habits. Microsoft's do-not-track feature, by default, alerts websites that the user's data is not to be tracked. While Mozilla announced it too would soon offer such an option in its Firefox browser, Apple and Google have not yet publicly announced plans. – GM
