Since we’re talking about click fraud…

AdNauseam is a browser extension designed to obfuscate browsing data and protect users from surveillance and tracking by advertising networks. With the help of AdBlock Plus it hides users’ interests in a plain sight by automatically clicking all ads presented on the web pages we visit. By assembling and listing the images of all these ads, its interface reveals to users how we are perceived by our commercial trackers. AdNauseam is a means also to express our discontent with the flagrant disregard for privacy that facilitates bulk surveillance agendas.
