Disable Sending of HTTP Referrer
How is it possible to disable sending of HTTP referrers? Is there a registry key that I could modify / add in order to prevent Internet Explorer from sending HTTP referrer to the Web sites I visit?
For example, it is possible to tweak Firefox to disable sending HTTP referrers. This could be done by setting network.http.sendRefererHeader to zero, from the about:config page. Is it possible to do something similar with Internet Explorer?
You will not be able to disable the HTTP referer in Internet Explorer. The HTTP referer is disabled by default for the secured websites. However, there is no option with the Internet Explorer to disable it.
