What does NoScript say about it?
Oh, I don't want to walk that far. Anything that takes more than 12 steps isn't worth doing! Eh? 12? Get it? Steps! Hehehe.- Homer J. Simpson

According to that the website you're visiting is trying to run javascript in a sneaky way. It could be safe, it could be malicious, it depends on what the developer wrote.

Uh, that's not really "sneaky". It's just executing JavaScript. It's actually how you make bookmarklets:

It doesn't offer you any more freedom than what you can already do with JavaScript on the page. The site you're referring to just describes a TERRIBLE way to utilise the functionality but that's it.
