GNU LibreJS aims to address the JavaScript problem described in Richard
Stallman's article The JavaScript Trap*. LibreJS is a free add-on for
GNU IceCat and other Mozilla-based browsers. It blocks nonfree
nontrivial JavaScript while allowing JavaScript that is free and/or
trivial. *

WebExtensions format. On top of that, multiple bugfixes and performance
improvements were added. All contributions thanks to Giorgio Maone.
