Help me choose my next oddball project:
1) The Scrambler: Fills your URL history with a large amount of sites you did not visit. The variety is enough to fool pattern recognition sites that try to estimate your buying patterns.
2) Bot Pit: Bot Pit attempts to trick webcrawler bots into infinite recursive loops, for example, consistent calls to a random number generator. The idea being to take advantage of programmer's use of the while loop.
3) I8U: Logs advertisers that shows you images and places them on a blacklist. It allows you to automatically generate posts about how disappointed you are with the advertiser, and includes quickly generated memes showing the product being used by distatseful people (think Obamaphone).
Hmm.. #2 sounds cool, but I think they probably end the recursion after a few iterations of the loop, so I don't see how that will kill the bots.
#3 So you are going to enable the ability to mark ads that aren't already blocked by programs such as ABP? Or is this supposed to be a ABP replacement? Because ABP is pretty damned good. I can't remember the last time I saw an ad unless I turn it off.
#1 is probably my favorite of the bunch.
Another idea would be to obfuscate URLs in the history, so you can browse without anyone being able to look at your history and quickly see what you were looking at, or maybe even password protect the history so it couldn't be read without knowing the key.
I like your thinking though MFM.
