Pushing this button then engages a big white halo over the chrome icon and the system enters into the "so you think you're not being tracked" or also known as the DM or denial mode.

Google chrome is getting more use than firefox nowadays, I hear. I prefer IE9 myself. It will be interesting to see how IE10 fares.

Haha that's so true. Firefox at least tells you that you are being tracked no matter what (or did I get that wrong?)

We are not even informed about what is 'being tracked' and what is not. Whole article is under 180 words with no links to the subject.
