The Free JavaScript campaign
by Zak Rogoff last modified Apr 06, 2015 01:26 PM
When looking to ensure that our computers are running free software, we usually turn our attention to the operating system and programs we install. Increasingly, we also need to look at the Web sites we visit. Simply visiting many sites loads software onto your computer, primarily JavaScript, that carry proprietary licenses. If we want to be able to browse the Web without running nonfree software, we need to work together to call for change.

Blog Entry FSF JavaScript guidelines picked up by Posteo Webmail
by Zak Rogoff published Feb 06, 2015
Over the last few months, Webmail provider Posteo has been working with the FSF to license and tag all JavaScript on their Web site and Webmail system so that it is immediately identifiable as free software. They have also done everything possible to ensure that it is 100% compatible with the GNU LibreJS browser extension, which automatically blocks any potentially nonfree JavaScript, making it easy to browse the Web in freedom. This is an outstanding effort in defense of the freedom of Posteo's users, and the company deserves recognition for it. We hope others will follow their lead.
