Thanks for taking the time to provide this feedback.
I hear you, and agree that it can be time and labor intensive to verify that your site's JS is not only freely licensed, but also properly annotated as such. We have recently discussed ways to improve GNU LibreJS that address this concern.
I disagree with your characterization of developers and teams who release their web apps as free software as "idiots". There are various nuanced reasons why a developer/team would do this, and none of them are taken lightly. Furthermore, such language and behavior is not tolerated on this mailing list. I believe that you are conflating the freedom of the licensing of the JS web app and the selling of access to the web app, and the "free" part of "free software" is only concerned with the former and not the latter.
Additionally, as you can read in our recent update on GNU LibreJS , we are currently working on an update which makes use of the WebExtensions APIs. This allows the same browser extension to run on any browser which supports these APIs, which includes popular non-free browsers such as Firefox and Chrome, in addition to GNU IceCat.
I hope that I've addressed your concerns, and once again, thanks for your feedback. You are always welcome to join us in hacking on GNU LibreJS or just chat about JS licensing in #librejs on freenode.
Good luck and happy hacking!
