Microsoft will give Windows 8 users 'Do Not Track' options for IE10

   When Microsoft releases Windows 8 on October 26 of this year it will include Internet Explorer 10. Although not enough people are concerned about it (studies indicate that many people don't necessarily take the time to change many settings on the computer), the do not track (DNT) option in IE 10 will be something that people will be presented with when the first start the new Windows 8 operating system. DNT is a system built into the browser which signals online advertisers literally not to track the user when browsing the Internet. According to Microsoft, the default settings will enable DNT but users will be presented with the option to change settings regarding DNT during initial setup. It is worthy of note that some people would even prefer not to use DNT simply because whatever ads they see will be tuned to their activities. It is also worthy of note that if DNT is turned on, using a program such as Advanced System Care or MalwareBytes can clean up the results of being tracked whenever a user wishes.

   It is not yet clear when Microsoft will release IE 10 for Windows 7 but that is certainly inevitable. The DNT options in that case are also as of now unclear, but there's no doubt that there will be options. Microsoft is likely not rushing to release IE 10 for Windows 7 simply because it makes sense to concentrate on Windows 8 at the moment, and it seems they are comfortable enough with IE 9 in its current state. It is also not likely that people would rush to get IE 10 to begin with as many tend to wait for the newest developments from Microsoft (and many others) see how such developments pan out.
