    AdNauseam: Fight back against advertising surveillance

    Project mention: Please maintain eye contact for the duration of the ad | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-06-13

    That is the reason they went absolutely crazy when adnauseam was introduced, as it used a different approach: it didn't block ads but loaded them in an invisible way, then "clicked" them randomly so that although the user wasn't pestered by ads, advertisers would get completely bogus click through data.

    >Oh, you can also allow canvas fingerprinting, but that seems like a bad idea - maybe in a separate firefox profile just for sites like this one..

    No it won't help. That is big problem with finger printing. It basically logs your computer hardward with the profile.

    So no matter how many times you make new profiles. This can be mitigated via VM. However with bugs such as zenbleed, VM may not be enough.

    Nothing is private has a good demo. https://github.com/gautamkrishnar/nothing-private
