Detailed description

Shuffle the list of links to test. The set will normally be sorted per item they were collected in and in many situation trend towards having the same origin repeated multiple times in a row.

Same-origin distance distribution (number of other links between links to the same origin) in my set of 2000+ links from 500 items before to change:

Min.   1st Qu.  Median    Mean   3rd Qu.    Max. 
 1.0       2.0    10.0   135.8     103.8  2089.0 

Same-origin distance distribution after to change:

Min.   1st Qu.  Median    Mean   3rd Qu.    Max. 
 1.0      15.0    52.5   207.0     202.0  1842.0

It’s not perfect but it’s an improvement.

I like it! (Also props for adding statistical evidence ❤️)

I’m not sure whether it makes sense to add a test — randomness is rather hard to test for…
