Apple Adds Do-Not-Track Tool to Safari

Nick Wingfield, reporting for the WSJ:

Apple Inc. has added a do-not-track privacy tool to a test version of its latest Web browser for keeping customers’ online activities from being monitored by marketers. […]

The move by the Cupertino, Calif., company leaves Google Inc. as the only major browser provider that hasn’t yet committed to supporting a do-not-track capability in its browser, called Chrome. Microsoft Corp. and Mozilla Corp. both offer do-not-track features in their latest browsers.

No idea why Google wouldn’t be leading the way on this.
