"Do Not Track"

"Do Not Track"

Parent article: Web tracking and "Do Not Track"

This is an extract from my /etc/hosts:
0.0.0.0 quadzero
0.0.0.0 a.tribalfusion.com
0.0.0.0 www.google-analytics.com
0.0.0.0 pagead2.googlesyndication.com
0.0.0.0 ad.doubleclick.net
(etc.)

This is not perfect, but it sure beat maintaining opt-out cookies.
It has the added benefit of not slowing down browsing when one of those service is down.

http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.txt . They seem to maintain a huge list of all websites which are either ads, disregard privacy, etc ... and can be cat'ed to /etc/hosts file.
