the bottom of the page. Otherwise, except for the GIMP icon, the icons
are just place-holders.
Some people consider scripts to be a security risk. Is there
to make the icons at the bottom of the page display without requiring
the user to enable scripts?
The site does NOT requite JS to show the icons in the footer. You are
likely using an extension to block scripts in your browser (noscript?).
If this is the case, you'll need to examine your settings to understand
what is happening, which is that you're actually blocking the fonts
(which those icons are packaged as).
So yes, you can easily view the icons in the footer without scripts
browse the web. Other stuff, including "objects", which includes the
downloaded fonts, is also blocked.
I suspect most people running noscript/etc block "objects" as well as
On older/slower/low-ram computers, blocking "stuff" is not just a
security issue - it's also just about necessary to be able to browse the
internet at all.
Nice fonts are nice to see. But downloading fonts and such from another
location to the user's computer does add to the weight and download
speed of a page, and as "objects" they are going to be perceived as "not
good" by security-conscious people.
Checking other browsers that aren't using Noscript/etc:
I checked using some other browsers and still don't see the icons.
Here's a screenshot of what I see in four different browsers - top to
bottom the browsers are Rekonq, Konqueror, Opera, and Firefox:
I don't use Rekonq, Konqueror, or Opera except for testing to see how
websites render. So I'm not sure what settings they are using.
I did check the Rekonq browser preferences. Rekonq was set up to allow
scripting and was probably more or less "default as set up by KDE". So I
don't know why the icons and images aren't showing up - the line
drawing, and the DTP images showed up, but not the image at the top or
the nice images for the photo editing/painting/etc. Konqueror also
failed to load some of the images.
As an aside, on my computer the page loading speed is very slow today,
even considering my "not fast" internet connection. For example, just
now it took 29 seconds to completely load the GIMP "about" page.
Sometimes pages actually timed out with Rekonq and Konquerer. As
reference, other websites don't seem to be taking any longer than normal.
