About http://www.w3.org/TR/2011/WD-tracking-dnt-20111114/
Tracking Preference Expression (DNT)
W3C Working Draft 14 November 2011



Currently the proposed Interface is
http://www.w3.org/TR/2011/WD-tracking-dnt-20111114/#js-dom

    WebIDL
    [NoInterfaceObject]
    interface NavigatorDoNotTrack {

        readonly attribute DOMString doNotTrack;
    };

How is it stable?


# Current implementations

Opera
We are in the process of figuring if we will implement it or not. 

Mozilla interface is slightly different 
https://developer.mozilla.org/en/DOM/navigator.doNotTrack
* There is a discussion about the HTTP header being another source of finger printing.
  https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=630357


IE supports document.navigator.doNotTrack
http://www.w3.org/Submission/2011/SUBM-web-tracking-protection-20110224/#dnt-uas

Safari, Chrome
Webkit had no record of it in its bugtracker.
I created it https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=73088
