NoScript does what it says it does - in that respect it's ok. As popular as NoScript isn the problem is when you visit a website it blocks a bunch of scripts by default without identifying "which" script is responsible for the web page element making it difficult to navigate the site. It is not useful to simply list blocked scripts without knowing what each is responsible for. Main issue is most users do not know which specific scripts from a list to enable, or leave disabled, in order to navigate the scripts as required. If users have to enable all scripts then that's like not having NoScripts turned on. If users have to disable all (non-default) scripts then browsing is virtually impossible. What is needed is a NoScript icon over each area on visited web pages to notify users what is blocked and what isn't - at least that way users can select on a need basis what to enable or leave disabled.

Also with the newest firefox or one of my extensions, noscript makes browsing really slow.
