Web tracking refers to a collection of techniques that allow websites to create profiles of its users. While such profiles might be useful for personalized advertising, it is generally considered a problem which brings user privacy under attack. Whenever a user opens a new web page, she has no way to know whether she is being tracked and by whom.
