the majority of websites are just going to ignore the setting completely if it is the default.

The sites are ignoring DNT requests anyway. The MS default setting is just a smokescreen.

indeed. If you have firefox, getting NS and AB+ is the best way to kill any tracking by scripts(google analytics is everywhere), and you can only enable the scripts you need for the site to run, not allowing 3rd party tracking cookies, and blocking those pesky facebook like buttons that track where you are(along with anything else you want to block. DNT is a good idea, but currently, every website but the EFF ignores it.

Ghostery is another good plugin for all browsers that allows more blocking of advertisers, FB, G+ and twitter tracking.
