Internet Explorer 9 to Get Tracking Protection

Microsoft [MSFT] has announced that the new Internet Explorer 9 browser will have tracking protection built in. What tracking protection will do is prevent web servers from tracking information about you visiting websites.

“Tracking Protection is the new privacy feature in Internet Explorer 9 designed to help keep third-party websites from tracking your Web behavior,”

By default, Tracking Protection will be disabled. To use it, you’ll need to enable it and then let it know what websites you don’t want to track you. Once enabled those particular websites, along with other website content that loads up within the page will lose the ability to know your browsing habits.

Tracking Protection was not included in the last Internet Explorer 9 download (beta), but we suspect that it will be included in an upcoming version ready for launch.
