    A poll by an advertising agency, what other result was to be expected? :D They probably polled their workers.

    Could be..lol. Evidently, those polled don't really seem to understand 'do not track' very well anyway, based on the poll results.

    lol sorry meant to say nss labs my bad :rolleyes:

    they are known to have bin funded by micro $oft donations in the past "if you want to call it that" and pumped out useless propaganda reviews.
    their testing methodology was intentionally one sided and selective on the topic of internet explorer vs other bowers.
    souce

    dig around and you'll find dirt on this topic.

    I wonder whether IE's "do not track" setting blocks all Microsoft tracking methods.

    Remenber that upset over Microsoft using zombie cookies?
