Referrer ("referer") information is a long-time security vulnerability. It allows sites to pull the URL of the last site you visited from the same tab and reveals where you clicked the link to the site.

It's one of the first things that I disable in a clean install of Firefox.

By default, sending it is enabled in in Chrome. But some security plugins may block it.

Any site that requires it is per se malicious and to be avoided.

What about network.http.sendOriginHeader? Should that be disabled as well?

I've got them both set to zero.

If you don't want to have to use the Terminal to launch Chrome every time (only way that they give you to change stuff not in the GUI), then you'll need a Chrome extension.

No idea whether this is legit, but it's the first hit in a web search:
