Blocks javascript that is both non-trivial and non-free

Disclaimer: Do not edit the Free Software Directory with GNU LibreJS enabled as it is known to insert random line breaks.

LibreJS is a browser extension that helps users avoid what Richard Stallman calls the Javascript Trap. It allows users to block javascript code that is neither free nor trivial. It works on recent versions of IceCat and other Firefox/Mozilla-based clones.

GNU LibreJS is currently very resource demanding. The LibreJS project is seeking more JavaScript programmers to help maintain this browser extension. If you want to help, send an email to <nikolas@gnu.org>.
