Description Nemo 2013-02-13 11:38:04 UTC
«Some preferences end with (requires JavaScript), but it is not consistently used, and given that practically everyone has javascript support these days, but a lot of people don't really know what it is, wouldn't it be better to remove the warnings?»

There are 6 such preferences in core.

I am sorry for the mess
Comment 4 Betacommand 2013-02-24 18:18:32 UTC
Actually a lot of users JavaScipt isnt supported. Or in other cases especially on mobile browsers it causes inconsistencies (Lynx browser does not support JavaScript)
Comment 5 Rahul Maliakkal 2013-02-24 18:18:50 UTC
Gerrit change #50614
Comment 6 Jesús Martínez Novo (Ciencia Al Poder) 2013-02-24 18:21:50 UTC
removing javascript keyword since it has nothing to do with JavaScript modifications.
Comment 7 Andre Klapper 2013-02-25 14:44:02 UTC
Rahul: Thanks for the patch!

Betacommand: See comment 0 - it's not consistently used anyway.

I would prefer us to err on the other side, then. What about adding those preferences items via Javascript? (only semi-joking)
Comment 9 MZMcBride 2013-02-27 18:02:52 UTC
I'm not sure about removing the warning text.
