Just a note, there's absolutely *no* security reason that this site couldn't use javascript to do what ever it wanted. The only security issue with javascript is when you allow untrusted users to display the javascript and have it executed by other users, which is the current flaw in the homenodes, although mostly fixed by a few (non?) default settings.

    Fair point with regards to this site. However the internet as a whole (the Monastery aside if you like) is one big untrusted user and as such JavaScript *is* a security problem and the only solution I know of is to have it turned off.

    As an aside it would be nice if Firefox had an option to allow JavaScript for specified sites in the same way there is an allowed sites list for Popup Windows for example.

    Update:And NoScript answers my prayers.
