Description

currently tor team have working on a fork of noscript #19280 (or at least I think so).
I think is also a nice idea add a option to run just "free javascript"

(non opcode and non server side depentendo script)

FSF has a campaign about this, look the loinks inside.

The push for "free" javascript is merely a political push to strong arm code publishers into using "free" Stallmanesque licenses (e.g. (A)GPL*) which are—arguably, however in the opinion of many here—less "free" than other less restrictive licenses (e.g. BSD, MIT, CC0). More to the point, since this type of "free" neither increases the security nor the privacy of users, I doubt this feature will ever be a priority for us.
