Hi all,

the normally very usefull page detexify¹ is using a miner for bitcoins²
implemented in Javascript. That is not very harmfull, but consumes a lot
of CPU power which might kill your laptop's battery lifetime.
The domain is bitp.it, so if you are using a Javascript-blocker, you can
block that domain to go on normally using detexify.

Just thought some of you could be interested,
