Blog Entry Troff document Take action for free JavaScript
by Zak Rogoff published May 29, 2013 last modified Jun 26, 2013 01:22 PM
Choosing to run free software on your computer is a powerful statement. Unfortunately, regardless of what you have installed on your desktop or laptop, you are almost certainly running hundreds of nonfree programs as you surf the Web. Web sites often use programs written in JavaScript to expand the capabilities of HTML, adding menus, buttons, text editors, music players, and many other features. Browsers come configured to download and run the JavaScript without ever making the user aware of it. Contrary to popular perception, almost no JavaScript runs "on the Web site" -- it runs locally on users' computers when they visit a site.

Blog Entry Octet Stream Tell EU regulators: Net neutrality isn't just for the US and India!
by Zak Rogoff published Jun 24, 2016 last modified Jun 29, 2016 10:50 AM
Net neutrality exists when Internet service providers (ISPs) must allow equal access to everything on the Web, rather than favoring some sites over others. It's a bedrock condition for Internet freedom, but ISPs generally oppose it because it prevents them from charging companies extra for privileged access to the network -- making a video from one Web site load faster than video on other sites, for example.

The Free JavaScript campaign
by Zak Rogoff published Aug 29, 2013 last modified Jul 11, 2019 03:05 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.
