Research project 7

The newest version of Google Chrome (Chrome 23) has finally embraced user’s complaints for a DNT (Do Not Track) option to make sure Google isn’t tracking their web activities and using their habits to advertise various products to them.  Systems such as iOS (the iPhone software) have already taken these measures as an option to users, but after many complaints about Google and Facebook giving away web-browsing habits to consumers, at least Google finally decided to help users protect their own privacy.  This relates to Chapter 7 in Visualizing Technology because it shows the different options and security measures used by various browsers.  Anyone who hates computer advertisements as much as I do would enjoy reading this article.
