      Description

      Through various debugging capabilities present in the viewer, including the log file, it is trivial to obtain the URLs that are obfuscated by using the 'Hide URL' checkboxes. Since that checkbox may lead users to incorrectly believe that the URL is genuinely private, having it is harmful.

      For other reasons, allowing users to see the URLs that may be fetched by the viewer (including that such access may allow the IP address of the viewer to be tracked) is desireable.
