Reading this post https://arp242.net/weblog/browsers-conflict-interest.html and it's pretty good and I agree with it - except for the section on Do Not Track.

I don't understand the point being made by it. The screenshot you provide of their notification does not seem inaccurate or scaremongering or somehow negatively influential.

In reality nowadays very few entities honor DNT and it makes users more easily fingerprinted. That is to say, it makes it easier for the bad guys to track you. For those reasons I don't recommend it to people.

Hm, interesting. I seem to recall that the error message was more scaremongering-y, or maybe it was in the past. I actually started writing this a few years ago, but didn't finish it until fairly recently because I'm a lazy.

I'll see if I can update it later tonight. Thanks.
