Mozilla issues do-not-track guide for advertisers

angry tapir writes "Mozilla has issued a Do Not Track Field Guide to encourage advertisers and publishers to implement do-not-track (DNT) functionality. The guide contains tutorials, case studies and sample code to illustrate how companies use the DNT technology. Mozilla aims to inspire developers, publishers and advertisers to adopt DNT and wants to put the control over Internet tracking into the hands of users. The browser maker wants to put a stop to behavioral targeting and pervasive tracking on the Web. The guide can be found here (PDF)."

I for one Hope this works though, and the advertising industry follows it.
Not for myself but for people like my Mom who only has me to delete her flash
cookies for her.
