Microsoft and Apache clash over browser privacy
Microsoft's controversial Do Not Track privacy feature for the upcoming Internet Explorer 10 web browser will be ignored by the world's most popular web server, the Apache Foundation's open source httpd.
Do Not Track or DNT was developed by W3C's Tracking Protection Group with the intention of allowing users to express their preferences when it came to who can follow them around the web.
Several large companies are members of the W3C group, including Adobe, Google, Comcast, and Microsoft. The controversy stems from Microsoft's decision to enable DNT in IE10 by default, a move that Roy Fielding, principal scientist at Adobe and one of the co-founders of the Apache HTTP Server Project, said is a deliberate violation of the standard.
