What is Do Not Track?
Do Not Track is a Chrome extension that adds the DNT: 1 header to all requests, offering users a simple and persistent choice to opt out of tracking by websites they do not visit. It aims to improve user privacy online by allowing an opt-out from analytics services, advertising networks, and social platforms with no reliable tracking opt-out.

Summary

Please note: this extension requires Chrome 17 or later. If you are running the default Release build of Chrome, this extension will not successfully install until late January 2012.

Do Not Track is a technology and policy proposal that enables users to opt out of tracking by websites they do not visit, including analytics services, advertising networks, and social platforms. At present few of these third parties offer a reliable tracking opt out, and tools for blocking them are neither user-friendly nor comprehensive. Much like the popular Do Not Call registry, Do Not Track provides users with a single, simple, persistent choice to opt out of third-party web tracking. A list of websites that have committed to honoring Do Not Track is available at http://donottrack.us. The source for this extension is available on GitHub.

Pretty sure this has a browser hijacker in it. After I downloaded it I started getting a white box in my google searches(I use dark mode and might not have noticed it if I didn't) that when I clicked on would take me to Bing results. I would also occasionally have my search results come up in Bing instead of Google. After I uninstalled it the box and redirects went away. I had to reinstall it for this review, which I think is kind of dumb.
