Random quote from a random comment from a random person:
"... I really hate the present AJAXification of the entire web - it's no
to fully surf websites on a 400MHz machine like the XO-1 without having to
name years ago: Bloat."
Add to that the reasons I listed earlier in the thread:
- It can slow down things significantly, because code is being executed
browser side. Some code parses the entire DOM of the HTML document and do
things with it. Some code polls remote servers constantly for information,
- It can be a vector for security attacks (Cross Site Scripting).
- It can be a hindrance to accessibility.
- It can be an obstacle to content getting properly indexed in search
And the Firefox NoScript extension is staying enabled on my laptop ...
