Thank you. That's interesting. I had read that page, and I read:

"For those browsers, and also in situations where meta referrer doesn't work, we send the request back to our servers to remove search terms. This redirect goes through

You can disable this privacy feature. To do that, go to the settings page, select Privacy, and change the option Redirect to Off."

Originally I concluded as you have described. But this seems to say the opposite,namely, that the "OFF" setting inhibits the stripping of search queries from the URL, and thus that "ON" results in their being stripped.

Hence my confusion.
