Ever hear of a GUI? Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Yesscript is a "too little, too late" addon. Noscript is MUCH easier to use and, unlike what the devs of this addon claim, does not force you to embrace paranoia. You can do the same thing with Noscript as Yesscript just by allowing all scripts and then blocking the ones you don't want to deal with. Simply rightclick the page and choose what you want to block vs all the extra steps you have to take if you use Yesscript instead. I think the devs fail to understand the KISS principle.

I still like this YesScript. But I've been trying to make it behave in a way that it would not need the http:// in each blocker it makes. I would've to make it work on the domain instead. Is there a way to do it?

Peace

I don't understand why some people review when they clearly don't understand what they were writing.

Some of them mention "AdBlocker". Which "AdBlocker" are they talking about. Give the exact name! Adblock Plus doesn't block javascript, but I use it to block java applets, images and url. I think this will work very well with Adblock Plus. If you guys know of better solutions, by all means, list them here!

And then there are those who mention noscript. After configurating "noscript" for the most of one day (burned/wasted me one Saturday), I still cannot get it to work like yesscript. And it still need to be fine tuned from time to time...

YesScript suits my need at the moment. I would like a shortcut to the blacklist on the icon though.

Excellent : juste ce qu'il faut , très simple et efficace; certains sites qui me bloquaient complètement ne posent plus problème.

Block < Script> tags found at certain URLs ( not domains ). Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I've spent days looking for something ( maybe an add-on )
to block < Script> tags found at certain URLs ( not domains ).

I love the new Google Images, but I don't want JavaScript to run in certain instances:
"google.TLD\images?" yes, "google.TLD\imgRES?" no.

FireFox's "Polices", YesScript and NoScript can't wildcard URLs,
they're confined to domains.

AdBlocker blocks (wildcarded) URLs from loading, but I want the page to load,
...to load without running the ****ing < Script> tags in it.

GreasMonkey runs AFTER the < Script> tags have done their thing,
so that's no good, and no one seems to care.

The greaseMonkey crowd says "AdBlocker" is all that's needed, nothing more.

What NoScript Should Have been, But a blacklist Rated 5 out of 5 stars

NoScript is too Annoying And Over-the-top.
It was love at first sight with YesScript.
Yes, It needs Wildcards, But I am sure the dev will get to that.
Thanks for creating Such an Easy to use, Light and Functional Add-on!

I was having trouble on Facebook, receiving the Warning:nonresponsive script error message. Instructions said to install YesScript but, I then I could not send messages, view or open messages or make posts in Facebook. I uninstalled YesScript but now, Facebook still does not work. It is as if YesScript has altered Facebook permanently. Facebook does not work without the script and uninstalling YesScript did not reset Facebook back to receiving scripts.

Pest Script Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Funny when you blacklist a page, and then it keeps popping up with the blacklist - after all it is called 'yes' script.

I love it! It is an indispensable add-on imho.

I liked NoScript but it became a bit to aggressive for my needs - no offence meant as it is great for some people, YesScript does suit my needs perfectly. If you surf the same sites and you know what you want to block (i.e. blocking certain scripts, animations etc on a social networking site that crash my browser) then it is as easy as 1-2-3, nice and lightweight too!

NoScript is not bad - it's just YesScript is way better than having neither one, but... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

@RYAN2779
You said:
"YesScript is so much better than NoScript, and so under appreciated. It makes NO SENSE to block all websites from using JavaScript and to have to manually allow each and every address. It got so bad with NoScript that almost every new website I visited, I was temporarily allowing scripts, which can be dangerous."

Some of us disagree - sure I still have to enable some scripts now and then and sometimes even disable them (one IT-blogsite was so heavily scripted that my 1,8Ghz processor was not up to it) but it's not that often and I never had to do too much of it. My biggest reason was not paranoia (I trust that Linux I use is hard enough to exploit badly if someone comes up with a way and that this and low share on desktops make pretty sure that script-kiddies have almost so little interest to spoil my day via XHTML+EcmaScript) even though I do very much like to secure my system where ever I can and exploits via websites have become known on all types of operating systems and browsers long before the thing we call JavaScript had evolved to what it is today (a dangerous tool - if used in exploit - as in powerful script language running in users browser)..

And you go overboard when you say that it was dangerous when you so often temporarily allowed scripts on whole site - well, I still say that mostly even simply keeping scripting on is quite safe - I know NoScript warns that it's dangerous and I can't argue as this is really matter of how we individually define what is danger and levels, etc. of it. What you used anyway was "temporarily allow", this YesScript - a good piece of work most certainly - just turns all on or all off.

So it's either "very dangerous" as you say or no scripts at all - at least with NoScript you can just set the plugin to something you would more likely prefer. NoScript->Options and first leaf, "General" and choose the very first (non-recommended if you are paranoid) option "Temporarily allow top-level sites by default" and of the three options defining what by is the site recognized I chose first: "Full address" - I was just testing, this mode was not for me but this way new sites are by default allowed to run scripts. Naturally if they use, for example, ad-scripts from other server and it has been (with good reason) banned then not all scripts on page naturally work - but you can choose not to ban sites lightly and you can unban them too.

For you NoScript set up like this could be a boosted up YesScript though. Sites allowed by default (but that is not written anywhere: temporarily allowed). Now you can "Revoke temporary permissions" (in noscript menu this is site-specific) and it is like in YesScript turning scripts off. Again select "Temporarily allow all this site" and you have turned scripts on again.
SO HOW IS THIS *BETTER*?
So far I only explained how NoScript can be made do just what YesScript - it might be not as pretty for that as one simple icon (I suppose it uses icon) but it's quite well designed. Also one day you bump into zdnet.com blog site of demons, you'd like to read but blocking all scripts will make the site fail and allowing them all will make it crowl. Riiiighhttt.... But you still have, always had, the option to block sites and allow previously denied sites hosting scripts - if we were living days when JavaScript was kept on the site it was used, rarely a document linked to use many different javascript files, in fact mostly provided simply inline within the html file NoScript would have almost nothing to offer over YesScript and only marginally small amount of people would bother with it.

But cross-site scripting is today and there are sites where you might want, you might *need* to block scripts to be able to use the site - yet stopping all scripts altogether will render some of these sites unusable too.

P.S. I am exaggarating but it's not untrue what I have murmured here ;) YesScript is a fine tool but what I wanted was to try prove wrong the bad image your words (I think) were giving to NoScript and point that, used correctly, it can be just as easy as YesScript but with twist for if you suddenly wan't site-specific script-blockings.

I think YesScript *is* great. But if I must compare I would say that YesScript is to NoScript what Lola is to FireBug :o I really think so.

More quote:
"The worst thing is it would only show part of the web page and sometimes hang on loading others. I only need it to block scripts on a few websites, not the entire Internet. The only thing missing is custom website blacklist, that would make this add-on PERFECT. Thanks."

Code is easy - I would propably prefer to start from NoScript source but why not take YesScript, modify it and offer your patch to the author. And if he don't accept it in his add-on you can always fork the project and release your enhanced version with slightly different name. It's just simple javascript and there is literally loads of example code to see around here....
Or... Was this plugin released under open source license?

I say "YES" to YesScript! Was looking for a way to keep Yahoo News from stealing focus and putting my cursor in the news search box everytime I clicked on a link. I couldn't scroll the page using the BackToTop extension without clicking on the page first. Dozens of times a day. Also, if I went back a page it wouldn't go to where I had left off - it would jump to the top because the cursor was in the search box.Tried NoScript but soon tired of having to set up a whitelist for every site I wanted Java on when there was only one I needed to block it on. Then found YesScript and it is just what I needed. It makes it so easy to blacklist a site that is giving trouble, and unblacklist it with a click if you need to run java on that site sometimes. Found other sites that load much faster without Java and have blacklisted them to. Super simple extension to set up Java blacklists!!

I only use this to block Drudge from auto refreshing and to obliterate certain annoyances on other sites that AdBlock Plus won't kill, like that obnoxious bar imploring me to "Join CNET" at the bottom of every page on their site.

NoScript is far more trouble than it's worth; sorry, not that paranoid. I do use it on those rare occasions when I want to go online in my Administrator Account, but for my standard user account this suits me perfectly.
