    That is the Statcounter javascript script that you are using on yru website.

    Since the Statcounter javascript script includes an img tag for the actual php script on the Statcounter site, and that image is being invoked with a query string containing the url being visited and the referrer, then that's an active link and thus it can be clicked - if it is being rendered in the browser. I suspect some browser helper, maybe a browser accellerator, as it will go and crawl all links it finds and try to download every single page in the background to the cache so that subsequent browsing is faster.

    Thanks.

    I figured it was the counter javascript itself, but couldn't figure why it would be the referring URL:
