It does not work if I were to load the target url in a video tag. It works for fetch and xhr.

The < default action > blocks referrers on pages you haven't configured which renders some completely unusable. It's impossible to login to Synology Photos web app with this extension active and sites like the Nextdoor app are completely broken with this active.

Does not work for Javascript document.referrer changes. No intent from the developer to fix. So useless for me.

This extension works in Chrome, but unfortunately not in Opera. Also, keep in mind that in order to get this extension to work on search engine results pages, you need to manually tick the "Allow access to search page results" in the extension details. This is turned off by default. Note to the dev, to get it to work in Opera, you need to do the following near the beginning of refererControl.js: (isChrome || isOpera) && 72 <= chromeVersion && optExtraInfoSpec.push("extraHeaders");

Doesn't work! I'm a developer and I tried removing the referer both in onBeforeSendHeaders() and onSendHeaders. Google chrome still adds it in the final request anyway. If you want to remove it you have to change the source code and build your own browser.

Worthless. Only changes HTTP referrer. You can still get the referrer through javascript.
