Microsoft (MSFT) plans to make Internet Explorer's Do Not Track feature activated by default on the next version of the browser. That isn't sitting well with the online ad industry, which sees the move upending the targeting efforts of display ad networks. Google's (GOOG) DoubleClick network tracks users across different sites, and Facebook (FB) is planning to launch an ad solution that would also rely on multi-site tracking.
