Referrer spoofing with PrefBar 3.4.1

Testing browser optimization, search engine friendly user-agent cloaking, referrer based navigation or dynamic landing pages with scripts or by changing the user agent name in the browser's settings is no fun.

I love PrefBar, a neat FireFox plug-in, which provides me with a pretty useful customizable toolbar. With PrefBar you can switch JavaScript, Flash, colors, images, cookies... on and off with one mouse click, and you can enter a list of user agent names to choose the user agent while browsing.

So I've asked Manuel Reimer to create a referrer spoofer widget, and kindly he created it with PrefBar 3.4.1. Thank you Manuel!

To activate referrer spoofing in your PrefBar toolbar install or update Prefbar to 3.4.1, then download the Referer Spoof Menulist 1.0, click "Customize" on the toolbar and import the file. Then click on "Edit" to add all the referrer URLs you need for testing purposes, and enjoy. It works great.
