Dec. 02, 2010— -- Federal regulators have proposed a new way to protect your online privacy. The Federal Trade Commission recommended a "Do Not Track" tool for the Internet, similar to the national "Do Not Call" registry for telemarketers. The tool would allow Web surfers to opt out of tracking that enables marketers to monitor their browsing habits and serve up targeted advertising.
