L’acteur du Web annonce qu’il ne tiendra plus compte de ce paramétrage du navigateur, dont il revendique avoir été une des premières sociétés majeures du secteur à l’implémenter. Yahoo, le faux ami du Do Not Track Mais pourquoi renoncer – même si Yahoo n’a jamais véritablement adhéré ni implémenté le Do Not Track ? C’est vrai (même si une étape importante a récemment été franchie), mais en grande partie en raison des manœuvres de ces mêmes entreprises pour éviter de parvenir à la formalisation d’un tel standard.

Computer Stupidities: The World Wide Web One time, I caught my Mom working at the computer, printing out information for my brother's report.

I blagged a little about that here. I don't use Safari on my desktop, so I don't sync my bookmarks to my iDevices. So I took a few minutes to copy the Javascript from all my bookmarklets and made this iPhone/iPad formatted page with all the Javascript in a selectable textarea for each bookmarklet.
