Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Three tags, referring to the same topic:

Each of these tags are just as frequently used as the other. I suggest to make referrer and referer a synonym of http-referer, because the latter contains the best description of the feature, and already contains a wiki excerpt.

+1 for the correct spelling of "referer". Everybody knows "referrer" was a fluke. – BoltClock's a Unicorn Apr 10 '12 at 20:35
Ugh, that misspelling bothers me so. – Cody Gray Apr 11 '12 at 1:11
