Web Site tracking software
« on: May 10, 2018, 11:21:08 AM »
I was upgrading my browser and looking at the settings and saw one that I had never seen before. 
There has been the option that you can select that tells the web site not to track you but it is advisory only and they don't have to follow your request and I am certain most ignore it entirely.
This was an option to inform you, the user, if a web site has a tracking function and is indeed tracking your internet usage.
Very illuminating feature.  Sites that I would never have guessed are tracking you, are indeed tracking you.   :(

Most interesting is this site. 
According to the notification there is no tracking going on from this site. 
It is just what it is advertised as being. 
A place we can get together to discuss all things forest and timber related without any other BS.
 
Yeah Kirk and company. Thanks :)

Hot stuff.

Which browser, and are you on Mac or PC, Android, IOS, etc?

It's the option to be notified that I had not seen; knew about the do not track (and it is routinely ignored by sites).
Learning/listening mode works best coupled with a thick skin.  Share what you do know and what you learn when you can
