Yes. Anything that gets covered with 'url' tags will start off with 'http://www.anonym.to/?' which will make you go anonymously to the link you just clicked. You can try it by going to: http://privacy.net/analyze/ without the hack installed. Install the hack and see what happens after.

Nothing is completly anonymous. If you don't want other websites to see you as a referrer, use this hack.

Your right Geographic2, but like intergra99 said, nothing is copletly anonymous. the best way would still be to disable 'url' but it would annoy members.

Why would someone want to hide where they came from?

Whilst visiting sites of inappropriate nature. Is the only good reason I get for this hack *lol*.

Otherwise still a small but useful mod.

Did you see the black screen with it saying were you were going after you would use the link? Remember, this is only for threads and posts. Not for your own links you make for the forum.

no black at all

and I understand what kind of links

I posted a test thread putting a link in the thread then I clicked it

I posted the link normaly and also posted it via bbcode
and tried both, no different than doing it without the hack,, that site still says which site and thread ID where I came from

Talking What can I say?

Well, tonight oddly I checked the same link again.. ( I did not change anything since yesterday) and sure enough.. I got the black screen (so quick I couldn't even read 1 word in it ) and sure thing, the site did not tell me where I was coming from


but also noticed I am using proxy now (forgot I did)

so I am not sure whats going on.. I will remove the proxy and use my real IP and try again later
