How To Enable JavaScript In Google Chrome?


JavaScript is a de facto scripting language for web programming. JavaScript is used to create actions, validation, animation, and communication for web pages and web applications.

Why Enable JavaScript?

JavaScript is a very important technology for the web. Most of the web sites rely on JavaScript to work properly. Event the web pages can work without JavaScript this will be very limited and poor.
