Have you ever started typing something into a web form and then you accidentally closed the browser and lost everything you typed there? Because of that I usually use an external text editor for long posts and later copy the text into my blog editor.


When the use of JavaScript is justified

Published on in ✍️ Posts

JavaScript is a controversial topic, especially in privacy and open source circles. That’s because JavaScript is often used to execute code on website visitors' devices that does things that aren’t so cool. For example, tracking users across the entire Internet. That’s why the use of ad blockers is actually indispensable nowadays, and some go so far as to block JavaScript altogether.
