Server Side Control vs. Browser Side Control[edit]

CORS should be a control at the browser side, but it went to the wrong way, it got to the server side. More specifically, when you are at, you want to access with javascript or java applet. Your browser will not allow this because of the "same origin policy". Now to extend this, it is also a policy for the browser, then why get into the server side to control the server? Got crazy? CORS is a control at the server side which is different from

The webpage sthFrom1st.html needs to tell the web browser what sites can be deemed as the same origin.

In fact, I think that this is easy to specify. In the html head, we can specify additional domains should be allowed to access. Browsers read these, then the original domain and the additional domains are all deemed to be the same origin. Currently, it is the browser block us. I am at, then I access, with ajax or xmlhttprequest, use firefox, I can clearly see that the remote server returns everything, and everything is good. but the browser does not allow me to access the content.

This is not the right place for discussing the future of browser technology. I suggest you bring your use case and proposal to the mailing list of the Web Applications Working Group of W3C, where CORS, the specification of Cross Domain control in your terminology and the subject of this entry, is being developed. I'll delete your section for the moment as "we" (and also future stuff) is fairly rare in Wikipedia. — Kennyluck (talk) 22:29, 27 June 2011 (UTC)

Orphaned references in Cross-origin resource sharing[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Cross-origin resource sharing's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "ars-blink":

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 03:51, 30 August 2015 (UTC)

Maintenance and rating of JavaScript articles[edit]

Concerning editing and maintaining JavaScript-related articles...


If you are interested in collaborating on JavaScript articles or would like to see where you could help, stop by Wikipedia:WikiProject JavaScript and feel free to add your name to the participants list. Both editors and programmers are welcome.

Where to list JavaScript articles[edit]

We've found over 300 JavaScript-related articles so far. If you come across any others, please add them to that list.

User scripts[edit]

The WikiProject is also taking on the organization of the Wikipedia community's user script support pages. If you are interested in helping to organize information on the user scripts (or are curious about what we are up to), let us know!

If you have need for a user script that does not yet exist, or you have a cool idea for a user script or gadget, you can post it at Wikipedia:User scripts/Requests. And if you are a JavaScript programmer, that's a great place to find tasks if you are bored.

How to report JavaScript articles in need of attention[edit]

If you come across a JavaScript article desperately in need of editor attention, and it's beyond your ability to handle, you can add it to our list of JavaScript-related articles that need attention.

Rating JavaScript articles[edit]

At the top of the talk page of most every JavaScript-related article is a WikiProject JavaScript template where you can record the quality class and importance of the article. Doing so will help the community track the stage of completion and watch the highest priority articles more closely.
