5. Under the “Privacy and security” category, you will find the “Site settings” option. Click on it to access the site-specific settings.

6. In the “Site settings” section, locate and click on the “JavaScript” option. This will bring you to the JavaScript settings page.

7. On the JavaScript settings page, you will see a toggle switch labeled “Blocked (recommended)” or “Allowed (recommended)”. By default, it is set to “Blocked (recommended)”.

8. To enable JavaScript and allow all websites to run JavaScript, simply toggle the switch to the right, so it says “Allowed (recommended)”.

9. Once you’ve made this change, you can close the settings tab and continue browsing the web with JavaScript enabled.

It’s important to note that enabling JavaScript can enhance your browsing experience on most websites, as many modern websites rely on JavaScript for interactive features and functionality. However, it’s also worth considering the security implications of enabling JavaScript on all websites, as it can potentially expose you to malicious scripts or attacks. Make sure you trust the websites you visit before enabling JavaScript globally.

Enabling JavaScript in Chrome on a Mac is a straightforward process that can be done in just a few clicks. By following the steps outlined above, you’ll be able to enjoy the full functionality of websites that rely on JavaScript.
