This feature allows you to hide the current website from third-party sites and even setting custom Referer.
Set a custom “user-agent” header
User-Agent is a line of text, which is part of the HTTP requests sent by your browser to the server.

Even better, you can set User-Agent of your choice.
Change your IP address sent by “X-Forwared-For” and “X-Real-IP” headers
