Some browsers have different "privacy" options like:

1. Strip the referer header entirely.
2. Only allow it for the same origin domains.
3. Allow "crossdomain" referer, but only set the domain part.

Of course you can also strip the Referer using a filtering proxy and not do
this in the browser itself.

Just my 0.69 cents.
