    Yep, and including around 5 programs you will likely never use in Ubuntu/Kubuntu is totally choice...

    Yep, but if NoScript were default, most people would think it was a necessary part of the Ubuntu experience, therefore due to the nagging, leave ubuntu. Those other 4 or 5 can just be ignored.

    But anyway, you asked for opinion, and those of us who do or don't have it do so for our own reasons, you really shouldn't append our opinions when running a poll.

    Only if the Firefox devs decide to add it as default.

    I find it very annoying, and would more than hate for it to be the default. Also, unless Firefox itself makes it a default, I see no reason for Ubuntu to do it.

    If people want proper security, then this is what they should have.

    I use it myself, but new users who are used to insecure browsing would be confused about why pages with flash/java don't work. After they complain about it here and someone explained to them why it isn't working they would probably white listing everything to make it stop bothering them.

    NoScript is annoying. Maybe we just need to write a "Proper Etiquette of an World Wide Web Browser" to outline the good behavior from the bad.

    Firefox having an option to block third-party scripts would not be a bad idea, but I know some people who dumped noscript because it was too intrusive in it's default configuration. If there was not an option to allow top level sites by default, I would not use it either.

    Thoughts and comments are appreciated.
    It should not be default. Its easy enough to add if you want it. I use it but I know it annoys a lot of people.

    No, I play alot of browser based and flash games, this would totally screw them up unless I told it otherwise EVERY TIME. Bah, lol.
