    Does disabling JavaScript use less megabytes (I use a wireless hotspot device sometimes when I am out and about) when running bots and things of that nature? I already disable images & JS (I know that images definitely use up more mb loading) but was curious if I even need to bother disabling JavaScript for this instance. Thanks in advance.

    Some sites won't function properly without it. Can't really give you a better answer unless you tell us more information about your set up. What sites? Are you using autoclickers? Ubot?

    I am using iMacros on 10 different user profiles at once (FireFox). Basically clicking stuff. I don't want to give up the specific site (as it wouldn't really matter for the question I asked) but it does function just fine with JS disabled. I am just curious if JS uses more megabytes, since I am using a wireless hotspot and I am charged per data usage.

    In terms of data usage, the javascript file is still sent when the page renders, it's only disabled in your browser. If the site makes many ajax calls, then disabling js will save you money on your data charges.

    I don't think so, if you're have a look at your web console you will that your browser is loading all *.JS & *.CSS files so they use data of your Wi-Fi quota, but I'm not sure about extensions or add-on that disable <script> tags within the page (or how do they work) but as far I'm concerned they're using data

    You also might consider Opera Turbo functionality. That does save some data too.

    Will this work with iMacros/multiple user profiles/etc ?
