TLU, thank you for that link. I've just spent a bit of time playing with NotScript, and it appears that it'll improve our security reasonably well for now, until the APIs are improved to the point that the real NoScript can be ported. Of course, this is a very minimal extension and obviously doesn't do even a fraction of what NoScript will do. It does beat just turning off scripting in Chrome and whitelisting as needed, which is a royal pain and doesn't allow for resources within a page to be turned on while others are left disabled. What it currently lacks that I believe could be added is a TEMPORARY whitelisting by resource. It includes a permanent whitelisting by resource, as well as a temporary whitelisting for everything. Basically if you need to temporarily allow just one thing, you either have to permanently allow and then disallow again later (good luck remembering to do that) or temporarily allow everything on the page and risk opening the floodgates for the scripts inside banner ads and everything else.
That's just the basics, though. I'm not even talking about all of the other cool stuff NoScript does, such as ABE, clickjacking protection, etc.
Chrome is shaping up to be a fabulous browser, but damn it, I continue to be disappointed in some of the BASIC things that are missing (essential extension API elements, print preview, bookmark tags, on and on...) while precious time is being spent going back and forth on what the menus should look like and where the bookmark star is to appear.
Anyway, thank you very much, Giorgio, for your persistence in trying to badger the Chrome Team into doing what should be done with respect to the extensions APIs, and for keeping the port of NoScript in mind. When that eventually happens, I won't be the only one who is indescribably grateful for it. The Chrome Team should see the development of these features as being important for the securability / security of the browser.
