I still use this script, even if others think it's not important.
Its quite annoying to use when visiting new sites, but, it does stop some popups and adverts, very useful addon, try it and see.
too much trouble
I love this add-on!
Trovo NoScript! un complemento essenziale per Firefox.
Su Internet mi sento nudo senza di lui.
Grazie di esistere :-)
I feel safer with NoScript!
Its really nice to have an extra protection on this program. Keeps you safer :)
This addon protects you against various forms of attacks. For people who want to be protected by the countless exploit attempts when browing the web, the first thing to do, in my opinion, should be to (get Firefox if they don't use it already and) install this addon.
If you like protection, this addon is good.
thanks for thiss
The best add-on, thank you.
The best security addon. Works like a charm, need a little configuration first few days but after that browsing has never such easier , nor safer. & it dosen't slow down my surfing speed , neither my Firefox 3.6.8 startup crawls (1 second with Firefox Preloader , without it 3 seconds tops ) . If anyone is suffering from speed issues I recommend FireTune (http://majorgeeks.com/FireTune_d4534.html) for browsing speed improvements, its much better than FasterFox'es and optimizes a whole bunch of settings, Also you can always speedup startup by vacuuming database , & of course by using MinimizeToTray / FireFox Preloader. But please don't diss this great project. Thank you.
The most important add-on! I couldn't browse the internet without it. Thank you!!!!
This extension is another must-have in my opinion. Its default block-all behavior not only secures the browser, but also saves the computer resources.
I Too was used to surfing the web In ignorant bliss, But I learned sacrifices had to be made.
Thanks allot for this add-on if it was not for this i could not go to One of my favorite site, they gets allot of attacks from malicious ppl and if it was not for you they would be force to shutdown their site! Thanks a Million and Emp thanks you too!
Thanks for this add-on. Many will be attempted to uninstalll the software because they are intimidated and/or annoyed by it's performance. Finally, I reinstalled it for the third time- and with information that I've obtained from the web- I am comfortable and very pleased with NoScript. You might want to inform (those that are considering to download this software ) to read blogs from others before considering to uninstall it. Also,my question- eHow.com
. provides "tricks" to make NoScript less annoying. Do you agree with their post?
NoScript is the only reason why I still use Tiredfox^WFirefox. :) It's a must have add-on, the most important one.
The number one security addon. I feel safer browsing with this addon, although I don't understand most of its settings like XSS , ABE, JAR, and so on.
same for me, but I'm sure they will fix it these days.
Great Addon, love it.
For some reason today when I got on firefox however, it seems noscript has dissapeared. When I tried to reinstall it it says that it is not compatible with my version of firefox, which is 3.6.8
Joshua Kohn... Also, you can disable the "Display Release Notes on Updates" under the Options -> Notifications. Whatever disturbs you, you could at least try to find solution before you blame.
I'm not a "hater" of Facebook or Twitter... But, simply I don't use these sites. So, I just set in "Untrusted" sector, scripts like Tweetmeme.com, fbcdn.net, Facebook.com etc while all those you can find 'em nearly everywhere. The result is fantastic. Extremely better loading times and of course cleaner look. I adjusted all my bookmarks once and done. For instance, sites like "failblog.org" I load 3-4 scripts, those who can make the site functional and I forbid 9-10 junk scripts! I see at last what I really want to see and not tons of trash.
All those apart from security that No "Scripts" offers me! Thank you friend neighbor ( I'm Greek, that's why I say neighbor :D )!
This is by far the best Firefox tool i ever had.
Now, since also the cookie controls can only be setted global in the Firefox preferences, i hope for an extension in the Noscript tool, where only the websites in your positive list may set cookies, while for all other sites cookies should be forbidden.
NoScript has been part of my standard add-ons for years now, making websites load faster, be more usable, be safer and teaching me a lot about internet security.
And please don't make a mistake like the one with adblock plus again!!!
Using obfuscated code is similar to tactics of the enemies of noscript, of internet security.
If you want users to enable ads on your site, just ask them or tell them that it's so by default.
I don't think many would have minded.
I'm still waiting for the public code repository you've promised. ;)
How hard can it be? There are so many code-hosting sites out there!
This is undoubtedly the best security extension for Firefox. It tries to protect you from the majority of attacks that exist on the web. If used with care, NoScript significantly improves your chances of staying secure. Everyone should install it.
The default configuration is nice but can be improved based on your preferences and usage habits. However, only tweak any settings if you know what you are doing.
Unfortunately the user interface, especially of the preferences dialog, is quite complex and designed for experts rather than normal users. One could argue that's inevitable when it comes to achieving strong security. But I believe NoScript can be made significantly more user-friendly without sacrificing neither security nor flexibility. It just needs some close attention by a good interaction designer.
A user experience expert already volunteered to help making NoScript's UI more friendly to newbies and average people.
Thanks for your suggestion, anyway.
