LXer: Important notice for free software supporters using Gmail

Published at LXer:

Are you using Gmail? Nearly 50% of the FSF's 40,000 strong supporter mailing list has an email address. JavaScript, once lauded for adding simple visual effects to web pages, is now used by web sites like Gmail to run powerful programs on your computer. These programs, like any other program running on your computer, should be free software. But right now, the vast majority of JavaScript programs do not respect your essential freedoms to run, study, modify and share them. They take control of your computer away from you; the same control we have been working for over 25 years to protect.
