    I'm running Firefox 1.0.7 with NoScript.
    It regularly asks to allow "akamai.net" both on trusted and untrusted sites.
    I never have allowed it to until last nite when I couldn't submit a request without NoScript temporarily allowing it.
    Googling "akamai.net" reveals nothing.
    I'm assuming it's connected to adware, but not sure. And should I let NoScript allow it all the time or continue on a situational basis?

    akamai technologies provides "global Internet content caching" for various sites. i just leave it blocked unless the sites not working or something.
