Also, IIUC, it blocks POST bodies and Authorization headers.

Anon blocks cookies from being sent to the server. It's basically for stripping a user's login from a request to a site.

ABE_rules.pdf says this:

Anonymize (synonyms are Anon and Logout) – strips Authorization and Cookie headers, turns methods different than GET, HEAD and OPTIONS into GET, remove upload data, then sends the modified request.


I've tested Anon on some sites. google, apple, disqus and a lot some more set - unflustered - cookies. This boards cookie for example was blocked. :)

So, i am not sure what Anon really does?

turns methods different than GET, HEAD and OPTIONS into GET.


Maybe someone can explain this in simple english?
