"Most modern browsers... have vulnerabilities that allow hosts of malicious websites to extract hundreds to thousands of URLs in a user’s web history, per new research from the University of California San Diego...

The only browser that was immune to the attacks was Tor Browser"

Yup, sounds about right.

@torproject and then you post a link with a 'fbclid' ... what is this, amateur hour?

From the artical I think the harm in Odysseus is relatively constrained.

But I didn't think I was subverting a security vulnerability when I decided to leave it that way. I just thought "ugh! Web designers really don't like the look of visited links, so it's probably for the best to not persist that browser history database."
