Description Elliott Sprehn 2013-03-18 06:39:16 UTC
The flag should be called anonymous instead of "anon". In general the platform does not contain abbreviations, and the attribute value this models is also anonymous (crossorigin=anonymous).
Comment 1 Elliott Sprehn 2013-03-18 06:40:13 UTC
Note that even the spec calls the thing this toggles the "anonymous flag" everywhere increasing the confusion.
Comment 2 Anne 2013-03-19 11:25:58 UTC
Note also that the way Gecko has implemented this does not nullify Origin and omit Referer.
Comment 3 Anne 2013-05-02 11:09:29 UTC
Sorry about the delay.

I guess the issue about Referer/Origin can be sorted separately at some point.
