OSNews, Generic OSes Now that the holidays are upon us (happy holidays!) and the year is about to end, we at OSNews thought it time to finally lift the veil a little bit on the next version of OSNews - OSNews 5. I've hinted at this next version of OSNews here and there in the comments, but we think it's time to make it all a little bit more official by taking in some initial feedback.

Javascript is the #1 way of being hacked through the browser. Usually in combination with Flash, PDF or Java plugins.

I use NoScript for security reasons. It has the nice benefit of scrambling most advertisements and tracking methods as well.

Most sites work fine without script. For those that try to insist via overlay layers and other tricks, there's various methods to override their CSS or edit the DOM via script. I find these Javascript-demanding sites to be so annoying that I enjoy defeating their silly tricks.
