Google Chrome Adds "Do Not Track" Support

For developers, Google is finally adding support for the Do Not Track privacy setting to its Chrome browser. “Do Not Track -- which aims to help users opt out of being tracked across Web sites for the purposes of targeted advertising -- is contentious and still somewhat theoretical,” AllThingsD reports. For instance, some critics say the setting has the potential of giving consumers a false sense of security. “But since Chrome is close to becoming the world’s most-used browser, if it’s not already, its support for DNT is pretty important.”
