    1. Where did the trend of disabling Javascript in one's browser originate from?

      I must have missed this boat and I'm having trouble understanding why people would do this. None of my colleagues, who are involved in tech fields such as my self, have ever done this. There must...

      I must have missed this boat and I'm having trouble understanding why people would do this. None of my colleagues, who are involved in tech fields such as my self, have ever done this.

      There must be an 'origin story' along with a tradition. Isn't there?

      Is this a niche objection to Javascript? If so, what are the objections and why are so few people, as far as I can tell, not concerned at all about this?

    2. What features do you want to see in a userscript manager?

      I'm currently developing a minimal userscript manager who's main goal is to be fully auditable by any user in only ten minutes or so - my prototype uses less than 300 lines of javascript, and I'm...

      I'm currently developing a minimal userscript manager who's main goal is to be fully auditable by any user in only ten minutes or so - my prototype uses less than 300 lines of javascript, and I'm trying to keep it that way.

      To get the codebase this small, however, I have to be very picky with what features I implement - most notably, the code editor has to be very barebones. Are there any features that I'd be shooting myself in the foot by not including?

      For example:

      • syntax highlighting
      • cloud sync
      • regex url matching
      • fullscreen editor (currently, it's just a browser popup - the intention is that you write code elsewhere and paste it in)

      Any feedback is greatly appreciated!
