Comment I actually don't care if the page is slow. (Score 1) 766

The real problem is that the browser's interface freezes up based on the content of the page. This is a design failure. If we lived in happyland where these programs were designed for the user, the tabs would have preemptable time slices and a processor butget. The user interface should never freeze. A back page should drop the processing of any scripts and closing a tab should free the memory of the tab without additional processor time juggling the content. Misbehaving pages would just go the way of the Dodo.

Can't we say this about any libraries though? But, I see your point. So many "coding" toys teach what programming isn't. Like this lump of gold.

It's not even Touring complete. All of its "programming" is just sequencing. It's as much of a robot as Teddy Ruxbin.
To actually program with this you have to replace the controller with an Arduino.
