JS without question exposes all of its code to the browser. There are 
server side tricks one can do to hide it from other user agents, but 
anyone who knows what they're doing can definitely get it.

If you think about it--your browser reads the JS code and parses it, so 
it's already been downloaded onto your machine. :)
