How to enable JavaScript in your browser

What is JavaScript?

JavaScript is a scripting language which enables Web authors to design interactive Web sites. Most of today's Web pages require JavaScript in order to function properly. If JavaScript is disabled in your Web browser most Web pages will not function properly, and this includes DXMAPS.COM pages.

Can JavaScript be harmful?

JavaScript is not harmful. It cannot be used neither to send you viruses, nor to get your password lists, nor to retrieve any private information from your computer, etc, so go ahead and enable it !

Here you have the description of how to enable JavaScript support in the most popular Web browsers:
