    The short version is some sites require Javascript turned on to operate and others don't. What are you concerned about that you have it turned off?

    Ah I see... yes some sites abuse JS and use it to serve popup ads and such. I use and adblocker extension here that seems to greatly reduce those. You can also use a JS blocker extension like this to only allow JS to run on sites you approve.
