whoa this is a cool way to fight invasive ads

@neko isn't that super risky? Like if it starts to open every malvertising ads, u probably gonna have a bad time :/

@adidal it depends on how the simulated clicks work and if they actually trigger behavior or if they just send a get/post back to the ad tracking backend, which would be totally safe as long as there isn't a hole in the internet stack. You can read the code to see exactly what happens if you'd like to (and please tell me what you find out!)

@adidal the last commit was 17 days ago. it's not a flurry of activity but it's not abandoned either

@adidal :thonking: fucking devs when short attention spans
