You exaggerate in an unfair way, uMatrix is no more difficult to use than NoScript. The matrix is a pure what-you-see-is-what-you-get, with natural logical inheritance of rules, and fully point and click to allow/block. If anything , I argue it's easier to use, because it makes it easy to set per-site rules (vs. NoScript's ABE), and at any granularity with no further complication. You can toggle the "all" cell to quickly un-break a web site while not causing you to go completely naked -- because per-site (again), and because of the imported blacklist rules from hosts files will override the broader rules (vs. NoScript allow everything from everywhere).barbaz wrote:µMatrix UI has a very steep learning curve (being intended only for advanced users, unlike NoScript which is supposed to be accessible to intermediate users).
It's a pity that uMatrix is unfairly described as more complicated than NoScript (typically from people partial to NoScript), because it's not, it's only a mental obstacle from people used to older ways of doing things. I was a user of NoScript, and it's definitely for advanced user, just like uMatrix, and just like uBO's medium mode -- at the end of the day, the difficulty resides in figuring what to allow/block, the allow/blocking is no more difficult to do in uMatrix than it is in NoScript.
