So Facebook is planning to mess with aria markup to throw off ad blockers according to this https://themarkup.org/citizen-browser/2021/09/21/facebook-rolls-out-news-feed-change-that-blocks-watchdogs-from-gathering-data
But reading this made me remember something. A few months back, I noticed a weird glitch while browsing FB, where the timestamps were suddenly getting very weirdly mangled with jibberish but only when reading from NVDA's virtual buffer, this persisted for a while but went away. Looking back on this now I think I must have been a part of them doing some A/B testing. So they had to be planning this for a long time.
@pitermach coming soon: rendering an entire page on canvas, as a picture, to make it utterly inaccessible. But hey, now there is no way for adblockers to detect ads!
