Editors' Review

NoScript can help you safeguard your computer by blocking JavaScript and other similar programs from running when you're browsing on Firefox. There are several ways you can set permissions through this program, and the right configuration for you will depend on your browsing habits and specific security concerns.

Pros

Permission options: There are quite a few ways you can give permission for scripts to run or block them using this program. You can choose to block them completely, allow temporary permission for a particular site, or always allow for a particular site. You can also give permission for all sites opened from bookmarks, or you can create a Whitelist of allowed sites.

Blockable programs: JavaScript isn't the only program this app is capable of blocking. In fact, you can choose to allow or block Adobe Flash, Microsoft Silverlight, and other plug-ins as well, all from the same convenient interface.

Cons

Time-consuming setup: While it's nice that this program offers so many options for customization, it also means it can take a long time to set up. Because of this, your Internet usage patterns and security concerns will go a long way toward determining whether the benefits of this program make the time investment worthwhile.

Bottom Line

NoScript is a handy utility to have in place to eliminate security threats and other annoyances while you're browsing. As long as you don't mind the time investment required to set up the program initially, your browsing experience will be significantly better with this program in place.
