I like adminer a lot but I noticed something that's really not ok. When I have http links in the table adminer makes them "clickable" and if click them in the adminer "select" view, it passes the url through adminer.org.
http://www.adminer.org/redirect/?url=http://www.bild.de <-- e.g. will redirect you to bild.de.
I don't see a technical requirement in here nor an improvement.
The problem here is that you know all links clicked within adminer and you also know where the links came from. That's really not acceptable.
The source says it's to hide the referer. Well, at least adminer.org knows them now.
I suggest to not make links clickable by default and simply let the user decide. Adminer has a plugin system so that's the way to go. For now adminer.org is just some random host which personally don't trust. The host; not the project.
