devbox writes “Microsoft says it will offer a privacy setting in the next version of Internet Explorer that will make it easy for users to keep their browsing habits from being tracked by advertising networks and other third-party websites. ” By designing these sorts of enhancements with privacy in mind at the design phase, we’re able to deliver a functionality that provides consumers additional levels of control over what they want to engage in and how they choose to do so,”Microsoft Chief Privacy Strategist Peter Cullen blogged. Previously Mozilla stopped working on a similar feature for Firefox after pressure from advertisers and other OSS projects as it would hurt their revenue sources from advertisers.”
