Re: [tor-talk] Programming language for anonymity network

Redefining anything in js is visible as "your nose on your face", as well as importing silently anything, whatever obfuscation/minification means are used it's trivial to check.

But here you do not have necessarly to import things and/or libraries, you can package everything with your app so you control your package and nothing can come from the outside or be injected.

Node is not an enormous platform with tons of dependencies, easy to check.

My opinion...

You should bring node to FF OS :-)

Actually, in my mind, that's one point against safety of Node.js
applications. Redefining, say, Array.prototype.forEach is a good way to
introduce hard-to-track bugs. Doubly so if this is done silently by
importing a package (almost sure the latter is possible, but I haven't
actually checked).
