A while back, I remember seeing information about a command you can type in your browser before a URL to freeze a redirect... so you can view the original page. I forget whether this worked for javascript as well as meta redirects. Does anyone know what the command is?

In IE you can type:

view-source:http://www.boneheadsslicknodetectredirect.com

Works like a charm. Thanks.

What kind of redirects is this catching... just meta refreshes, or javascript too?
