    I usually see what new switches have been added; or when they're removed. I use this link: -https://src.chromium.org/svn/trunk/src/chrome/common/chrome_switches.cc

    If you look for no-referrers, you won't find it there. So, sometime ago I removed that switch from my batch file. I then started to use the extension ScriptNo, which didn't work quite well with Chromium builds.

    So, I was looking for info that could point to clues that pointed the reasons why no-referrers was removed.

    This is actually embarrassing, because I'm familiar with the following link, but I always thought it was the same deal as the above link. :oops:

    -http://peter.sh/experiments/chromium-command-line-switches/

    In this link, you'll see that no-referrers is there. In fact, I just re-added it to my batch file and went to Dshield test page, where one can check the browser header -https://secure.dshield.org/tools/browserinfo.html

    It is working. I actually should have made that test before deleting the switch, back then. :D

    Just in case you also believe this or that switch was removed, it may have not been removed.

    I wonder why -https://src.chromium.org/svn/trunk/src/chrome/common/chrome_switches.cc lacks, at least, no-referrers? o_O

    This is why one shouldn't put blind faith on anything. Lesson learnt. :ouch:

    I usually go by Peter's. I've seen plenty of Chromium information pages that aren't completely up to date.

    I've always liked the way he presents the switches. AFAIK, he's been an official Googler for a while now.
