Re: Is turning off Javascript really necessary any more?

What I've been doing for many years is disabling all scripting and plugins globally and only allow what is needed on a per-site basis. You only have to allow it once, after all. That's in Opera, in FF I use NoScript so that is taken care of there. IE is neutered and not used for anything.

That said, most sites now are CMS based and will need .JS for basic functions, sometimes even navigation...unfortunately. It's crap, but sites do browser sniffing, include all their ads, and use things like FB/Twitter/Google API's via Javascript.

For example, this link posted in the Home Improvement forums shows a totally blank page in Opera with scripting disabled.


The difference between web pages and apps is pretty much non-existent these days.
