#466 closed enhancement (Won't fix)

Torbutton should maybe strip node.exit from http headers

Description

In order to not break node-side caches, transparent proxies and sensitive virtualhost setups,
torbutton should stirp out node.exit from the HTTP headers of requests. This is probably possible,
but I have no idea what interface it would be. Since polipo doesn't want to modify http headers,
and since they can't for ssl even if they wanted to, this probably falls in torbutton's lap. But
since privoxy does it currently, it is not a high priority item.

We're planning to move from Privoxy to Polipo about the same time that
torbutton-dev becomes stable, so this would be a great feature to
have. Somehow. :)

Thanks!

We should kill node.exit notation and rely on vidalia instead for many other reasons. Closing this.
