holy shit i just saw a news website that injected a ‘check out these other stories before you go’ page into the history so you’d get that page if you hit back after reading their articles

fucking evil

@violet single-page application type reasons. lots of things will manipulate what shows up in the URL bar without ever triggering a page load

@hierarchon Well, it still feels like we've seen it used more for evil than otherwise tbh.


@violet because when it works well, you don’t notice it’s being used at all! :v

@violet @hierarchon reminds us of websites injecting links into copypastes, so if you send quotes to your friends and don't check before you hit send, you also link them to the site it came from
