Consumer Watchdog Praises Mozilla For Taking New Steps To Protect Privacy Online

Mozilla's announcement comes at a critical point for online privacy as the US Senate is considering a bill that would use a different technology – Do Not Track – to protect consumers online. Introduced by Senators Rockefeller (D-WV) and Blumenthal (D-CT) it would charge the Federal Trade Commission with establishing standards by which consumers could tell online companies, including mobile applications, that they do not want their information collected. And in turn, the FTC would be charged with ensuring that companies respect a consumer's Do Not Track choice.

"Mozilla's action, made possible by Stanford's Cookie Clearinghouse, is just a small step towards regaining our online privacy," Simpson said. "But hopefully this signals a tectonic shift in the browser privacy world and we will see the other major browsers -- Microsoft's Internet Explorer and Google's Chrome -- follow suit soon."
