Enkoder Update

Unlike another Mac OS X address-encoder (announced yesterday on MacUpdate) which merely encodes addresses with numerical equivalents and displays them with JavaScript (thus leaving addresses completely exposed to spambots with even the most weak parsing ability – which most if not all possess), the Enkoder uses un-parseable JavaScript to decode the address on-the-fly.

That’s Real Protection, kids. The kind Dad told you about.

Carl would argue that, technically speaking, everything is parseable if you have enough cpu-power and unlimited time. But the likelihood of spambots incorporating a full-fledged JavaScript-execution methodology and taking the time to execute every JavaScript on every page on the Internet and grab, store, and parse the results, all the while looking for encoded text stored in an array is pretty darn unlikely.
