I think that cpu is not a parameter to take care when looking to support
javascript. Freenet itself use huge amounts of cpu...

What about of allow only some functions of javascript ? (I know that you
can obfuscate everything but there is always a way to filter that shit).

Why don't make a requirements list to see what javascript
functionalities are useful and see what functions must be avoided for
security's sake?

Also is always good to have a test suite to check if the browser doesn't
have holes...

The last thing is that I remember that java applets can be used with
security profiles. There is no option to disallow almost everything
dangerous and see what can be allowed safely (and see if they are
useful..). The main advantages is that you can have 'search engines' and
some database tools embedded on freesites using compressing techniques
and some cool visual effects :P (the most close to flash and even can
use something like nasa world wind:
