    There's plenty of credible testimony and evidence that javascript is a serious problem at this time.

    "JavaScript-based malware attacks have increased in recent years and currently represent a signicant threat to the use of desktop computers, smartphones, and tablets."

    Multiple pieces of malware now exist in the wild that are taking advantage of Java vulnerabilities to install themselves as "drive-by downloads" with no user interaction required.

    most sites are involved in risky behavior by leveraging third-party JavaScript

    Noscript may not be only partially effective, but it is what we have.

    I've been using it for years. The small additional hassle is not a factor for me.

    And let's not forget the recent JavaScript malware that infected over half a million Macs.

    I have made an attempt to use it on the past, but the customization is quite longer, so generally i use Adblock plus.

    When i want more security i use the browser xxxterm with a whitelist.
    The configuration is very easy is sufficient add a domain for the activity that you like as:
    js
    plugin
    cookie
    Even if isn't possible a fine regulation but only activate all things on a domain or nothing.

    Anyway perhaps on future i will make another attempt on NoScript.

    That was Java, not Javascript.
