Why Do Websites Run Programming You're Never Gonna See?

That's what I hate about JavaScript and images online: the browser is going to read and perform the WHOLE PAGE, even if the user just looks at the first tenth of it! Is there a way to tell your browser only to read the part of the webpage you're usin1?

Yes there is a way to only allow the things you want it`s called NoScript.So use Firefox and install the NoScript addon and then allow only the scripts you trust.It will take a while until you learn how to work with NoScript but it`s worth it.

You can always block images from a particular site that you don't find useful also you can block all the images to load while surfing javascript is used on every site and is very useful like here in mylot also but we can block javascript to load too but then some of the features that require javascript won't work and you would have to load the page again with javascript on if we disable javascript the page loads up fast

As a user here has also stated a website developer don't know what each person is looking for so basically it better to provide every thing for eg: just disable javascript and load mylot home page you would see many links that we mostly use is not accessible as we haven't loaded those scripts and also if we use search engine then we won't get notify when we earn rewards as that too load through scripts basically a website without some script is likely to be less attractive as we can't do many things there

I use the program mentioned below, so--after a few days--I block all the Javascript I don't need (letting through the Javascript I trust I DO need).
