[News] Richard Stallman Offers Solution to Javascript Trap

Hash: SHA1

And RMS Spake, and it Was Good

,----[ Quote ]
| And it's also a red-letter day when he does, as with his latest missive: "The 
| Javascript Trap".  
| [...]
| He comes up with some interesting solutions:
|     we need to change free browsers to support freedom for users of pages 
|     with Javascript. First of all, browsers should be able to tell the user 
|     about nontrivial non-free Javascript programs, rather than running them. 
|     Perhaps NoScript could be adapted to do this.   
|     Browser users also need a convenient facility to specify Javascript code 
|     to use instead of the Javascript in a certain page.  
| RMS: where would we be without him?



Speed test: Google Chrome beats Firefox, IE, Safari

,----[ Quote ]
| Google offers a site with five JavaScript benchmarks. On each one of these
| tests, Chrome clearly trounced the competition. I hope benchmarking experts
| and developers will weigh in with comments about how well these tests
| represent true JavaScript performance on the Web--either for ordinary sites
| or for rich Web apps.


Google Chrome is a warning shot over the bows of Internet Explorer, Firefox,
Safari, and Opera.

| The open source software project, to be detailed later Tuesday at Google's
| headquarters in Mountain View, Calif., should dispel any lingering thoughts
| that the browser wars are over. To be sure, it is less cutthroat now than in
| the 1990s, but one of technology's most powerful companies is now on the
| battlefield.


New direction for 'JavaScript 2'

,----[ Quote ]
| Standardization efforts for the next version of JavaScript have taken a sharp
| turn this month, with some key changes in the Web scripting technology's
| direction.


Java developers get repository help

,----[ Quote ]
| Sonatype on Tuesday began offering a tool for Java developers to manage
| internal Maven-based code repositories and access external Maven
| repositories.
| The company's Nexus 1.0 product is a Maven repository manager; the Maven
| Central Repository itself features a repository for binary artifacts and
| publicly available project metadata, the company said.


Study: Java still top programming language

,----[ Quote ]
| Java has its detractors, but according to a recent reading of the Tiobe
| Programming Community Index, it's still the dominant programming language,
| with little change in its overall popularity since August 2007. Runners up?
| C, (Visual) Basic, C++, and PHP.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
