Hello, I was wondering if you can set your browser, or if there is a plugin available to ignore 302 redirects? I know I've used PHP & CURL, and CURL had the option to follow redirects or not, so technically its possible, but can a browser be set to not follow them either?

In IE...

Internet Options > Security > Custom Level > Settings

I've not fiddled back there lately but there are all sorts of advanced settings for overriding things like 302s. Please do let us know which of the settings you "fiddled" with so that we all know. :)

firefox 3 seems to prompt you (well block it with an allow button) by default, which you may like. I would not be suprized if other versions such as FF2 have the option as well though (most likely in the about:config, not just the options).
