Today I came across a fantastic artical through the fediverse.

Let’s Replace JavaScript With Something Better

And I would encourage webdevs to take John Ankarström up on this, as I would love to be able to disable JavaScript in Odysseus. But I can’t do so without breaking most webpages out there, though I am considering allowing you to disable it globally and reenable it on a persite basis.

And I do think it would be interesting fork Servo to experiment implementing some of these ideas at the level of a browser engine. And maybe if I have a proposal for how to manipulate the DOM without resorting to scripting, I’ll blog about it.
