Feature #37

Updated by Soren Stoutner about 6 years ago

By default, WebView sends an X-Requested-With header with the application ID (com.stoutner.privacybrowser.standard) with every page load.    It looks like it is possible to change the header, but not to leave it out.    This is probably because Google wants to force apps to identify themselves to advertisers.

 At a minimum, it would be nice to allow the user to set a custom header.    Ultimately, we might need to embed imbed a custom WebView to get full control of the functionality.
