Surfing and privacy
Security-conscious people have been aware for a while about the tracking protection offered by various browsers, whether or not that feature is configured by default by the browser or not (hurray for IE10!). Turns out that this is of not much help since the web server pretty much does what it wants with it.
Then my eye fell on a nice little free utility (browser plug-in) from a company called "Abine". The utility is called "Do Not Track Plus", and allows you to go one step further. It is available for download here.When downloading, you are informed that the tool is not supported on IE10, which is my main browser. I can confirm however, that the tool works without a problem in IE10.
Go download! Be Private!
