and how many times must Google keep me waiting to read a page whilst they track/analyse and spy on me. It now takes 2 to 3 seconds after selecting a page for it to even begin loading, whilst a little message ' waiting for google...' appears at the bottom of my screen. They are running at least 5 scripts on this page alone.

I am less and less interested in digging through the dross to find value here.. sad.

"In the context of the World Wide Web, Perl, VBScript, and similar script languages are often written to handle forms input or other services for a Web site and are processed on the Web server. A JavaScript script in a Web page runs "client-side" on the Web browser". Not been interested in Web designing it looks as these scripts are necessary. My AV usually blocks or warns of the bad ones. That's the internet for you, information highway, both ways.
