NoScript: fast and secure web browsing

Do you hate animated ads on web pages? Roll-out whole-page ads that hide main content? Big flash content that will slow down page loading? I do.

Simplest answers for this problem are:

  • use text-only browsers (Lynx-like)
  • disable JavaScript globally in your browser
  • install NoScript Firefox extension

The last option is better if you sometimes need graphics and Flash/Java Script. NoSCript has cute configurable interface:

By default JavaScript / Flash are blocked for all sites (good starting setting), you can enable them by white-listing.

Very useful side-effect of NoScript (except nasty ads removal): your browsing is safer. Only selected domains (whitelisted explicitly) could execute JavaScript in your browser.

    I love NoScript, but I feel that I should point out that actually, security is the main point of NoScript, and blocking ads is the side effect, not the other way around.
