           Summary: Restricting the sending of the HTTP Referrer
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 526+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.5
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebKit Misc.
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: markus.wulftange at gmail.com

There should be an option similar to the Cookie Acceptance option wether the
HTTP referrer is automatically sent or not.

Another good option would be to just send a HTTP referrer to the same
website/host name:

  Source                  Destination           Sending Referrer? (Reason)
  http://example.com/  -> http://example.com/   true  (same host name)
  http://example.com/  -> http://example.net/   false (different host names)
  https://example.com/ -> http://example.com/   false (HTTP to HTTPS)
  https://example.com/ -> https://example.com/  true  (same scheme and host
  https://example.com/ -> https://example.net/  false (different host names)
