    If you like paranoid security or quiet and simple browsing, then you may be a fan of no-scripting doctrine. In that case, you may be interested in this short tutorial explaining how to setup and use Notscript extension for Google Chrome, including changing the default password, using whitelisting and general practice tips.

    Well, it blocks scripts, so I don't think updates are critically important in this regard. But that can be an indicator about the future of the extension, although I think it will work well for quite a while.

    Did use it for a while, until I got sick of broken websites and removed all javascript whitelisting tools.

    I used NotScript and I thought it did a great job. It's nothing near as good as NoScript in Firefox but with what it's got to work with (Chrome...Chromium) it does quite well once you learn how to use it. There's also a cookie manager called Vanilla which I liked as well.

    I just normally turn the JS off by default & click the runbar icon to build up a whitelist. Oddly, NotScripts seems to work better on Opera (probably the only extension that does work on Opera). Not that anyone should use Opera particularly ... ;)

    i hate this No-script stuff.

    it *breaks* the Internet experience. :thumbd:

    most if not all websites need javascripts just for basic functions; navigation bars for example.

    I feel the same way! Some sites run scripts that I don't need and if I visit those sites often enough, I block just those scripts. For example, in some cases, they are associated with sliders/carousels; in others, they provide "hover cards".

    Palant's AdBlock Plus (and Element Hiding Helper) is sufficient to identify them.

    I think ABP & a decent flashblocker should be all you need.
