Does it support wild characters ? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Does it support wild characters ? Apparently no, what a pity. I have to input lots of dynamic domain names manually.

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Agreed on the URL pattern - the reason I found and installed this add-on is because I'm sick to death of the horrible IntelliTxt / Vibrant Media in-line ads.

However, IntelliTxt craftily have dynamic domains for each site; E.g. "http://mysite.intellitxt.com/"

I'm not paranoid, and I don't mind non-distracting ads - after all, they pay for the sites I love - so I'm not going to go the FlashBlock/AdBlock/NoScript route.

I'll keep using this add-on, blacklisting each site's IntelliTxt host, but I'd love to see at the very least some basic wildcard support, if not full regex.

no URL patterns possible Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Unfortunately does neither allow asterisks nor regex to define URL patterns. This makes it unfortunately quite useless to me, as it lacks lots of flexibility!
Nice attempt, but too quickly coded (for now). Hopefully will improve!

Awesome for people who dont use virus ridden operating systems! you'll see a few comments from poor windows users who are terrified about their system getting pwned so they claim everyone should be running noscript; forget that! I only want to block javascript on sites where it annoys me, I have no security concerns. noscript annoys me (i dont want to have to tell it that it's ok to run scripts from umpteen million sites that use js responsibly) so using it becomes a zero sum game

NoScript may be great if you actually want what NoScript offers. YesScript is NOT attempting to cover what NoScript does (and the author clearly explains this).

All I wanted was a lightweight, quick way to disable the annoying scripts on one particular site. That's all, nothing more. YesScript works great for that. My only criticism is that the YesScript icon in the status bar is a little TOO convenient. A dirty mouse (or, more commonly, a stray brush against a laptop touchpad) is all it takes to accidentally blacklist a site. It would be nice to have an option to either disable the icon, or perhaps to add a confirmation prompt before adding a site to the blacklist.

I'm not using YesScript on security issues (handled in a system-wide way), but on cosmetic/speed issues, when I encounter a few sites which are really to stubborn with ads, stats and you name it : YesScript is here exactly what I need. I've abandoned NoScript after a few months, far too in my way.

Luddites abound here Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Ghis1964 among others here are clearly luddites!

1st none of the blockers are totally effective since there is XSS issues to be considered which NoScript's developer is actively doing.

2nd, the rule of protection is DENY ALL by default and then allow only that which you need (white listing). So thinking to close the gate after the horse is out is moronic at best (black listing).

Too bad we have not yet gone to needing a license to use a PC yet.

Missing wildcharacter Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It really needs some kind of wildcharacter because for example yahoo mail page can have hundreds of servers (http://us.mc***.mail.yahoo.com) and you would have to block each one by hand. Otherwise it's a brilliant ideea.

This is very useful little thing. The only problem is that I usually forget its name, and then have a hard time finding it again on Firefox site... Five stars and a big YES for "Yes Script" :)

This duplicate's NoScript's blacklist mode. Check off the option in NoScript to allow scripts globally, and it will use a blacklist instead of a whitelist.
It's a little misleading of this product to boast its usefulness because it does something the other product doesn't do by *default*. I find it a lot easier to just change my existing extension into blacklist mode than to uninstall it and install YesScript, which lacks many features of NoScript.

subj vs NoScript Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Problem is that some sites uses foreign javascript api or flash, like banners counters etc.
So i think, noscript is better.
About paranoia: remember security holes, that have given us 3.5.1 and 3.5.2. Noscript users just dont mind about that.
But internets are blessing you for another unit in FF-addon galaxy.

JavaScript blocker for smart people

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simple, effective, lightweight and perfect. This is an essential extension for all Firefox users. Please keep it updated!

I tried QuickJava and NoScript, only to finally stumble across this one which was exactly what I needed.

NoScript is overwhelmingly heavy for today's secure and fast browsers. It weighs in at 427KB and has a thousand options. YesScript is ideal for blocking a handful of sites. It's only 43KB and does one thing effectively: blacklist sites from JavaScript.

What a Simple and Useful Add-on. Thanks, np.
By the way, can you add option that user choose to enable or disable status-bar icon?
I have 3 other status-bar icons already, and that cause mis-click sometimes. Some users like me will achieve their goal with manual management only.
Thanks.

Nice !!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Noscript become really heavy, and it's not compatible with adblock+... YesScript is my choice now.

Question: does YesScript block also the third party script (google & co...) of the site please?
Suggestion: Please add add tool bar icon in next release please, I dont use the status bar :P.

Good idea, yet I think I'll stick with NoScript for the moment. But I'll keep that one in mind, NoScript can be annoying indeed, on websites where scripts come from tons of different domains.

The author makes a good point about paranoia. For normal people who do not visit porn/warez sites, this whole thing about the Net being full of malicious scripts waiting to wreck your PC, IS A MYTH.

In 5 YEARS of using Firefox with Javascript enabled, I have never had one single bad script or alert of one. This despite, visiting many websites each and every day. Where are these scripts that people are so frightened of? My antivirus software (Avast) and security programs that scan at night do not pick up anything.

The only reason that I need YesScript now is because some media sites I use, run at 100% CPU because of poorly coded scripts.

um Yep Rated 1 out of 5 stars

" by bugmenot on April 18, 2009
Seriously, what's the point? Overconfident browsing won't do you any favors once you go somewhere you shouldn't have. Blocking something bad *after* you've exposed yourself to it is useless."
