GNU LibreJS is an abrowser add-on which blocks non-free javascript. It works to solve the problem described in RMS's The JavaScript Trap

+1 for the cause.
The problem is we'd need to fix this first:

Also some sites break in functionality, e.g. Yahoo Mail is totally unusuable even if scripts are allowed since the script name changes on each re-load. Hopefully this will be fixed in an update of LibreJS though.

The developer is aware of the first issue ( It is because of how this content management system works. I actually mentioned on the LibreJS mailing list that I wanted to have a look at it but I never got round to it. A proper solution would make it possible for other sites using Drupal to pass the test (if they really use only free JS). We are using Drupal 6 on this site and the solution would ideally have to be ported to Drupal 7 to allow other Drupal-based sites to work properly too.

+1 for the cause. Abrowser is nice. Yeah, TOR browser might be a better idea.

LibreJS is included by default with IceCat, now available in the repos.

Yeah, this can be closed now since LibreJS is included with IceCat and Abrowser.

i agree, we need be against nonfree software in Abrowser, becouse by default now allow run nonfree software in javascript, and we need say no to the nonfree software by default.
