Anybody using this extension? What is your opinion compared to using NoScript with FF?

I don't use an extension, I use Chrome's built in script blocking. Go to Options > Under the Hood > Content Options > Javascript and switch it off. Then when you visit a site that you want to enable, click on the icon in the address bar.

(Bump, sorry for the necrophilia.)

I'm also very curious if people have any experience with NotScripts.

I'm using this extension with Opera and it is great. IMO, is better than NoScript for Firefox. See my quote below from another thread.


II have been following the extension development forum and also the extension gallery rss feed. There are already some pretty good extensions. My favorite is "NotSrcipts (https://addons.labs.opera.com/addons/extensions/details/notscripts/1.0.3/?display=en)", which is more intuitive and a lot easier to use than the Firefox NoScript. To be honest, on the latest couple of months I have been turning NoScript on and off several times because of bugs and to avoid breaking some sites. I was looking for an alternative that would be simpler to use without compromising security. I finally got what I wanted with NotScripts and Opera.

I presume the Chrome version must very similar to the Opera version.

Does it offer all protection features compared to NoScript? or are some things missing?

i don't get why not more attention has been given to this post. to me it sounds like the extension is useless considering this is a built-in feature of chrome/ium.

It isn't, because the built-in feature only allows to block a site or not. It doesn't allow to determine if scripts will be allowed only if running from the same domain of the page you are visiting, it doesn't allow to block/allow scripts from specific sources while visiting a page and doesn't allow to assign rules temporarily. That being said, it seems to me the Opera version works a lot better than the Chrome version.
