Poll: Do you ever turn off scripting in your browsers?

By December 6, 2012

Follow me on:

JavaScript and other browser scripting languages (ActiveScript, for example) are becoming more and more critical to many web designs and applications. But just because you like to view pages with JavaScript doesn't mean that everyone does. I have some sites that I block JavaScript on and other sites that I turn it off periodically because of crashes or other problems.

Disabling JavaScript in Various Browsers

Scott, the About Guide to Web Browsers, has a bunch of tutorials for how to turn off JavaScript. Try them out for yourself:

Jennifer,
I am trying to find a link to all the past poll results, as this information can be pretty useful once the poll is over and all have voted. But I don’t see one anywhere. You might put a link after each poll to a list of past poll results, so they are easier to find.

I had to use the search engine, which does not return them chronologically, etc. Thanks.
