Quick JavaScript Switcher

Discover a super simple tool for disabling JavaScript on a certain page to determine how it should be scraped. Great for detecting SPAs.

Quick Javascript Switcher is a very simple Chrome extension that allows you to switch on/off the JavaScript for the current page with one click. It can be added to your browser via the Chrome Web Store. After adding it to Chrome, you'll see its respective button next to any other Chrome extensions you might have installed.

If JavaScript is enabled - clicking the button will switch it off and reload the page. The next click will re-enable JavaScript and refresh the page. This extension is useful for checking whether a certain website will work without JavaScript (and thus could be parsed without using a browser with a plain HTTP request) or not.
