in thread I mostly browse with JavaScript...

Note that "Disabled, enable when needed" is meant to include having two different browsers, one with JS, one without and picking between the two depending on what you are doing.

What about people who use prefbar to enable JavaScript only when needed? It takes a single click to enable or disable features with this nice toolbar. It's not two different browsers, but it does fit the "Disabled, enable when needed" description.

I usually browse with JS enabled. But when JS slows down a site, or is used for annoying things like text that follows the mouse, scrolling titles or statusbar texts, I disable it by unchecking a checkbox. I have Java disabled, but when needed it can be enabled with a similar checkbox. Etcetera... :)

    No, when I said it "includes" having 2 browsers, I certainly didn't, well, exclude "disabled, enable when needed" from "Disabled, enable when needed".

    But you raise a good point. That should also include "enabled, disable when needed", which is a configuration I hadn't considered. (:
