This is not cloaking

 5:18 pm on Oct 1, 2000 (gmt 0)

I often get asked "what exactly is cloaking, and how does it work?"

Let's try the reverse - here is what cloaking isn't and not how it works:


it should be noted that the site author makes no claim that this is "cloaking", simply a way to hide your code, but I found the approach amusing.

hahahahahaha - I run 1280x1024. Didn't work too well for me ;)

ROFL This is high tech cloaking for the ignorant.

I think we all have seen a page or two like that on the net though. There have been so many schemes along that line thought up. The current scheme, appears to be a product call Java Script ;) I think code protection/obfuscation is half the reason people use it.

Have you checked out the HTML for [amazon.com...] lately?

Sacre Bleu! Zee code, eet iz meesing!!!!

That tiny scroll bar is a dead giveaway, I wonder if they considered the additional load times they introduced with all those spaces, the page must be at least 1.5 times larger than it really is. Sacre Bleu! Indeed.

be interesting to see if the SE's will ban Amazon for cloaking! (sarcasm spilling all over the place)

LOL ... and I was wondering in these days why Amazon page was so slow loading...

Ya, 80chars to the right will hide the code every time.

Squish, on the other hand, compresses your html file into as few lines as possible. Although your code will be easily seen, the person trying to analyze it will have a headache because.... Well, why don't you just check out the source code of the squished version of this page to see what I mean.

I checked "squish" in the Concise Oxford Dictionary.

It gave the definition as "marmalade" so I presume that "squished" means marmalized - need I say more and don't forget to wash your hands when you have finished.
