    Hiding referrer from other servers?

    Hi,

    I am trying to link to some other webservers, and do not want them knowing that the users are coming from my site to theirs. Anyone have a good JS hack to do this? Opening a new window and going to the link does not do the trick.

    Thanks!

    I'm not aware of any tricks to do this. As far as I know it is totally determined by the browser whether this information is provided without a website having the ability to override this.

    Maybe there is a Flash trick? I might have to repost in flash form.

    It is a browser function that is part of the headers sent for the page so there wont be any solution available client side and a server side solution will only work for incoming requests not outgoing.
