    I use NoScript regularly, however it really confuses others who use my computer -- they often tell me your computer is broken and some websites don't work on your computer.

    Yes its a pain for a lot of people until you configure it appropriately. It should not be included by default.

    Re: Should NoScript be in *buntu by default?

    I say no, simply because too many people would find it annoying. I don't really find it annoying, after I've disabled the notification that slides out, but a lot of other people probably think allowing domains on the fly is annoying.

    well, xsane, bluetooth, and probably other stuff. but one can't complain because there is a sizable amount of people who find that useful. noscript on the other hand would annoy the majority

    No. Maybe if Ubuntu was a special security-focused distro then it would make sense, but not for a general-use desktop system.

    it too strict to use it each day too much sites works badly with it, but extremely useful then you need to do dangerous surfing

    Privoxy helps, some, with privacy, I have it running on a standalone firewall & it doesn't seem to be a noticeable slow down like it is when on your desktop/notebook machine.

    Copfilter has great configuration scripts setup for Privoxy as well.

    I haven't worked out how to setup Tor on the firewall/proxy yet, I think it is a tough job.

    I don't use NoScript these days & I don't think it should be in Ubuntu by default, it is too complicated, invasive & most users won't want it around.
