    What is googleapis.com used for?

    Hi,

    I just found out that for useing the Filter for the Mangas (if you e.g. want to just let it display all "One Piece" files) in e.g. [Eng]Scanlations you have to activate JavaScript for the site googleapis.com (if you use NoScript Extension for Firefox - like I do)

    However, previously it was enough to just allow mangahelpers.com to get this to work.

    So why does it now require googleapis.com?

    Maybe it would also be a good idea to add a small button for changing the selection without having to activate JavaScript at all.

    I'm no tech, so I'm just quoting google:

    Google's AJAX APIs let you implement rich, dynamic web sites entirely in JavaScript and HTML. You can add a map to your site, a dynamic search box, or download feeds with just a few lines of JavaScript.

    API stands for "Application Programming Interface". Notice the dynamic search box, I'm guessing that's what's used. I hope that was a good enough enough answer (also to be honest, I'm no sure myself )

    Actually, I would have suggested that too - as that is more or less what APIs are used for
    However, I wondered that it worked without allowing googleapis.com before.
    However, maybe it was previously hosted on mangahelpers.com too and now they only link to the one on googleapis.com - or I had to allow it previously too and just forgot that I had (though somehow I don't believe that ).

    No, you're right, it worked without allowing googleapis.com before...
    It's just more convenient to link it from googleapis for us currently. It might go back to being locally hosted, but that's something we have to see in the future.

    And it's the jquery files that's being linked. ^^
