  1. SocialHistory.js - Potential Privacy Concerns

    Via ReadWriteWeb: SocialHistory.js can detect what popular social networks your visitors have recently visited by (1) creating a small hiden iframe (2) populate the iframe with links to those social networks (3) check the colours of those links, as visited links will usually have a different colour. One of the most wicked hack I have seen this year and I can already think of a dozen evil modifications that you can do to this script.

  2. Search Engine Highlight Javascript 1.5

    It has been almost a year since the last update (way too busy at the moment), but here you are -- a new version of Search Engine Highlight Javascript for your websites. What is in this change:

    • More search engines are supported. Added MSN Live, Technorati and Dogpile.
    • Add the framework for search engines that don't use query string, i.e. Technorati, Dogpile and many others.
    • Fix up an issue with Hilite.style_name_suffix = false.

    It has also been tested on IE7, FF2 and Opera9. Go to the project page and download either the zipped file or the raw JS from my SVN repository.

  5. Client Side Port Scanning with Javascript

    Prrof of concept of port scanning arbitary IP addresses from nothing but client side Javascript. From the code it looks like creating IFRAMEs and setting the SRC attribute to try to connect to ports, and has a list of web server signatures to check against. Pretty scary in what client …

  8. Scripturizer for Javascript Bookmarklet

    This idea is actually implemented after Glen's comment on a possible Greasemonkey plugin.

  12. Super Mario -- in Javascript

    Via Boing Boing. Someone in Japan has implemented the whole of Nintendo classic Super Mario in Javascript. This is totally insane. Why someone would do that is beyond me, other than to prove that it can be done. It does bring back quite a bit of childhood memory though...
