    It does not ... that should really be a browser function. Although many of the larger firewalls include extras for doing so ... as well as ads and such.

    If you're using Firefox ... this is a great extension. In Opera - Go to Prefs' -> Advanced -> Network and then uncheck the referrer option. Proxomitron, Privoxy etc. can also accomplish this.

    HTH;

    Sorry I don't - I've never used it. You may like to start a thread in Software and Services and hopefully Maxthon users will be able to help you out. Privoxy would likely be the easy way for your to achieve blocking the referrers for any browser you use - you'd just need to change the connection settings in your browsers to use 127.0.0.1 port 8118 once Privoxy is installed ... They have pretty good documentation, it's fairly easy to use ... the Hide/Block - Referrer directions are here.
