allow for additional controlling of content types

Post by jawz101 » Fri Sep 28, 2018 4:42 pm

I don't know if "script", "other", or "object" control these web technologies but it would be nice to have the ability to block sites from creating service workers, web notifications, device sensor access, web beacons, running web assembly code, indexdb, dom storage, clipboard events, payment requests, autofill, gamepad, etc. And give them the same precedence as javascript. I think NoScript only displays sites if they at least contain javascript but I may not necessarily want a domain to have permission to do some things that might only do some other functions.

Websites can't use that stuff without javascript. If you mean for script-allowed sites, it should already be possible when surrogates are brought back.
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!

Thanks. I was wondering if that was the case. Perhaps that will be possible at a later time. Sometimes I am hesitant if allowing scripts might open the floodgates for something I may not desire- though I assume I only allow scripts on things I mostly trust anyways.
