JS, just say no

"Another issue is that when browser technology charged ahead, trying to avoid JavaScript was the wrong thing to do"

**** off, sites that just give a blank screen with JS turned off are an abomination: A web site should not be broken if JS is disabled, but so often is.

Given that JS is a massive malware vector, the less JS the better.

Especially when so many sites use various CDNs, or "libraries all the way down" with huge scope for a nasty lurking somewhere outside their control (very few sites self host all their own JS, based on my inspection when I decide whether to allow any JS for a visited site)

You might think me paranoid, but there is no denying JS and good computer security are fundamentally incompatible.
