How to Enable Javascript in your Browser

JavaScript is a cool programming language (sort of) that works with HTML. It allows websites to be much more interactive and dynamic, with things like pull-down menus, mouseovers, cookies, advertising, button clicks, and so on.


But to get all these goodies, JavaScript has to be enabled in your browser. Although it's usually enabled by default, it's sometimes necessary to manually enable Javascript. Here's how.
