    Does Firefox have an option to block sending of refferer information, like in Opera?

    I suppose that makes sense. I've probably downloaded it myself, if I didn't grab the install from a friend. :rolleyes:

    a little google:

    Firefox 0.9.2 does not currently block Referrer by default. It is easy enough to do this:

    type about:config into Firefox
    Set network.http.sendRefererHeader to 0


    and some extensions popped up for handling referer-stuff. no clue what they do exactly :)

    I use Firefox 3.5 for no particular reason other than I heard it was better than IE.

    Just curious what everyone else uses and why they use it.
