Prevents passing referrer to third parties, removes redirect trackers, resolves short URLs, and more.
This extension attempts to prevent passing referrer data through links to third parties by adding noreferrer to the rel attribute. It detects page changes, so that links will still get processed for pages like Google's Instant Search or infinitely scrolling pages like Twitter and Facebook.
It removes in-line click events, such as Google search result pages and third party Facebook links, which tend to be redirect trackers.
Currently resolves short URLs on Twitter, but a near-future version will resolve any short URL on any page.
This is not as overzealous as similar scripts, and will likely never break functionality of a site or its links, particularly links on the same domain (which this script will never touch).
Note: Be sure to enable for incognito mode by going to Tools -> Extensions and checking the 'Allow in incognito' box for ALP. This extension does NOT currently store any information about your browsing history, and as such, is perfectly safe for incognito mode.
