There has been plenty of publicity about the use of banner advertisements to track the browsing habits of Web surfers. IDcide is a plug-in for Internet Explorer which analyses the "cookies" attached to banner ads, and selectively blocks those which can be used to track your movements. You can set different security preferences, and the plug-in will tell you when a Web site is trying to track your movements. IDcide is far from being a total privacy solution, but what it does, it does well.
