Note: a lot of discussion is taking place at Group talk:FSF/Tasks/ModifyNoScript.

The Task: Block non-free javascript

Many websites try to send non-free javascript to you when you browse them. Most web-browsers, including free software ones, automatically execute this javascript. Which leads to the problem of running non-free software without having had the choice or being aware of it. This problem is described in more detail in Richard Stallman's essay The JavaScript Trap.


GNU LibreJS is the first -and currently the only- project which implements the desired behaviour.

Navigating the NoScript source code

You can download the source code of noscript here:

It seems to be written in javascript, and the majority of the code is in a zip-file called noscript.jar in the "chrome" directory.

(RequestWatchdog.js seems to be the file that checks requests, and may be the one that we need to modify -Caz)
