Just in case it’s not enabled yet: How to enable JavaScript in your browser and why

It even has some html to redirect to it, which I’ve replaced with the wayback machine (and put into a gist as WordPress kills noscript tag blocks and everything they contain.

I needed it as at a client site, one of the embedded devices would show the message “Javascript is required to use this web portal” in various web browsers so I had to check the JavaScript status in each browser.

When your browser extensions go rouge…

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/11/21

A while ago I suspected at least one of my Chrome extensions to do funny things.

In the end it appeared that “Live HTTP Headers 1.0.8” went rogue a while ago and has by now been removed from the store as this link is gone: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/iaiioopjkcekapmldfgbebdclcnpgnlo ()

It was part of a much larger set of extensions that went away and isn’t limited to Chrome: other browsers with extension mechanisms suffer from this too. More links about this at the bottom of this post.

Which means that by now you should be really careful which extensions you have installed and enabled.

So, browse through these and ensure you’ve disabled everything you don’t need permanently:

On Windows 7, Visual Studio 2015 wanted Internet Explorer 10… here are the direct links to download it

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/06/20

Boy, don’t you dislike how hard it is to find direct download links

Well, thanks to kenorb and jjlin (slightly edited):

Check: IE6, IE7, IE8, IE9, IE10, IE11 Offline Installers Download Links – kenorb Mar 20 ’15 at 13:39 – http://www.itechtics.com/download-internet-explorer-all-versions/ – note this does not provide hashes.

jjlin:

Try these Microsoft offline installer links:

These may refuse to work if you already have IE 11 installed, though. If it is refused, try this: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/20043971/how-to-downgrade-from-internet-explorer-11-to-internet-explorer-10

And in case these links ever stop working and you must obtain a copy from a non-Microsoft source, here are the SHA-512 hashes for posterity:
