Popular Web Server To Ignore IE's Privacy Setting

Because Microsoft sets Do Not Track as the default, Apache turns its nose up


Apache, the most commonly used software to house Web sites, will ignore Microsoft's decision to disable ad-tracking technology by default in Internet Explorer 10.

Microsoft set IE10 and Windows 8 so that, by default, Web sites that observe the Do Not Track (DNT) standard won't track people's behavior. The move was made to "better protect user privacy," the company said.
