IE 6 beta clamps down on privacy

privacy       2001-06-16 
Internet Explorer 6, scheduled to be released in August, will be the first browser to support a new privacy standard called Platform Privacy Preferences, or P3P. With P3P, Web surfers can configure their browsers to automatically determine whether a Web site collects personally identifiable information, uses that information to create user profiles, or allows visitors to opt out of the data collection.
