I always wondered why Microsoft didn't crush Google by forcing such
settings in Internet Explorer some years ago. They could even have done
worst, downloading but not showing and ask the choice to users on
install time, and let advertisers know this fact ( which would have
rendered all statistics useless, and therefor disrupted the market in a
way that Google would no longer earn as much money ).

Maybe I am more evil than Microsoft :(
