Thoughtful Use of JavaScript When Designing Embeddable Tools

One of the security blogs I follow is Schneier on Security from Bruce Schneier. If you want to understand what is going on around the NSA and security, Bruce is the guy. I was tweeting out a story from his blog today and noticed his share buttons:

You have to actually enable the buttons before you can click, protecting you from the common monitoring we face everyday through JavaScript. It is a simple, but very powerful concept when thinking about how we use JavaScript.

This approach represents a very thoughtful use of JavaScript, something I would like to do more of, and is something we should all be doing as we are building embeddable JavaScript tools.

Thanks Bruce!
