Re: [SQU] Anonymity needed?

The set is selected to gives full (or almost) HTTP capabilities with
minimal leakage of user-specific details.

Specifically, the set DOES NOT include:

Cookie (does not need any explanation)

User-Agent (browser type and version)

X-Forwarded-For (added by Squid, containing the client IP)

Via (HTTP standard, containing a list of which proxies the request has
passed thru)

Headers not allowed are not forwarded.
