Does the Do Not Track setting in browsers actually do anything?

Rcook12 makes a good point ("Don't mistakenly think that DNT works for everything or that you are surfing anonymously.") I believe it's never wise to assume the stated policies of the major browser vendors are as they appear. I wonder if using <a href="http://duckduckgo.com/">DuckDuckGo</a>, the search engine that explicitly protects user privacy by not recording user information, would be a solution. What I'm not sure of is whether browsers can grab that info even if you're using DDG.
