Chrome added a Do Not Track feature to its 23rd build, released yesterday. Do Not Track is a W3C specification for browsers to add a feature that’s been included in browsers like Firefox for a while. It basically tells connecting webservers that the browser doesn’t want to be tracked, and it’s up to the individual server whether to acknowledge that wish. It’s turned off by default, though, so if you don’t want to be tracked (and why would you) and you’ve got an up-to-date version of Chrome, you can turn it on by going to settings, asking to see advanced settings, and clicking a checkbox.
