Details of views of web pages

Right hope i've put this in the right place.
I was wondering how much information people can get when you visit their website, ie what info can they get about me or my computer and will they obviously know its me if I go on? I'be been told people can see how u got to the page, ie how you searched on search engines to find the page etc is that true? Also e-mail addys etc?
Are there any ways around it if so to protect my data better?

Thanks

Well really there's not much they can get off you,

go here

http://alpha.hackerwhacker.com/freetools.php

Then go down to browser leakage, that's most of the information a website can get off you. Ignore the other tools, as I remember they are dodgy.

Most of it is just about your browser, what it is and what files it can correctly display. It can get your screen information as well, width etc.

The only thing that you may potentially want to hide is your referer, which is what tells them the page you came from.

To mask that you can use the firefox plugin "refcontrol", using the personal messages annoys quite a few websmasters though.

But yeah, here's a link http://www.stardrifter.org/refcontrol/

Your ip address is also sent, but if you want to mask that it's another post and a half... and right now... nah...

Yours faithfully,

Metasyntactic.

There's this thingy from danasoft:

It's tells anyone who views it some of the info they leave behind on websites.

It should work, if not it may be because you are in the open area not trusted area with this post.

Right well thats a bit worrying, guess it doesn't matter to much. Is there much people can do with that sort of info?

Is there any way of not letting them see this info on you? Or is it not possible or to much hassle?
