NoScript Reviews

Good, but complicated

It works good and it makes your browsing safer. But, it blocks all JavaScript so it breaks some webpages unless you add domain to the whitelist. If you don't want to whitelist almost every website you want to use, this is not for you.


Breaks everything, employs malware tactics to make money

about NoScript and Adblock Plus May 2012

This script may protect you from bad things on the internet, but it also breaks every single site you visit. If you want to manually "Allow" 3-4 different domains on every site you visit just to allow things to work correctly, this is the extension for you. It really should operate on a domain whitelist that's updated from a central source, instead, like Adblock Plus. Forcing every user to create their own whitelist, which is 99% the same as every other user's, is a huge waste of everyone's time.

Additionally, the NoScript authors used malware techniques to disable Adblock Plus on their own sites, purely to make money. I wouldn't trust them, and I'd like to find an alternative.
