Referrer

Greetings:

Does the Epic Privacy Browser send 'referrer information' to sites I visit?

Thank You,

Re: Referrer

Yes we do allow referer information to be sent mostly because it's a browser standard now...we have in the past blocked referer data when you were leaving search engines, but search engines themselves now block that data.  We hope to have a larger list in the future of sites to block referer data from for enhanced privacy.  It's not a good idea to block all all referer data because we have tried that and A LOT of websites broke particularly e-commerce and banking sites which will suspect fishy http header data i.e. header data missing the referer...
