I see there's already been one forum post about it, but I'd really like to see "except IE 10" be an option in Piwik when honoring Do Not Track.

At Piwik currently when a visitor is ignored because of DNT, we do not track ANY data at all, not even log the request. Therefore it would be a bug, if we would not record any IE10 visitor. People would complain and report bugs and loss of traffic.

So I propose that we IGNORE the DNT header for all IE 10 users and as a result, Track all IE10 users in Piwik.

Of course IE10 users who wish to not be tracked should use proper extensions for IE that block advertising and analytics beacons, such as ghostery on firefox.

I agree. What a shame, this is turning unfortunately into a bad situation for all of us. I edited ticket.

I didn't mean to ignore IE 10, I meant to ignore its DNT header. Since IE 10 has DNT enabled by default without the user requesting it, the header's validity is questionable. I'd like to honor DNT requests, but treat any request coming from IE 10 as though it didn't send a DNT, even if it did.
