NoScript and Chrome

Post by Quest » Fri May 03, 2019 1:58 pm

Considering that you can now install NoScript to Google Chrome there has been quite a silence about this subject. There it sits but I wonder what it does and what not and is there any development going on?
From outside it looks the same as on Firefox so that’s no problem (more than with FF.)
A couple of problems that I stumbled on are:
1. Seems like NS doesn’t work when Chrome in incognito mode.
2. When disabling protection NS demands to load the page again.
3. Drag and drop doesn’t work in drop down menu.
Maybe that’s just me but nevertheless …

1. Seems like NS doesn’t work when Chrome in incognito mode.
I think it is more that extensions, in general, are disabled by default in Private Windows (in Chrome).
You need to specifically need to enable (each) extension you want available in a Private Window.
2. When disabling protection NS demands to load the page again.
I gather you mean rather then (potentially) only reloading changed parts?
3. Drag and drop doesn’t work in drop down menu.
Explain? Not sure what you mean?


The way I look at it, is it "works", which is something that wasn't the case before.
It now makes "Chrome" a viable alternative.

I have found some sites that "fail" in Chrome (with NoScript).
I have found some sites that "fail" in FF (with NoScript).

That it does, something, you now have an option that you didn't have before.


Pointed out elsewhere that not all Quantum (NoScript) features are available in Chrome.
Which, not sure. Again, it "works", so that is good enough for now.
(Not all NoScript 2/5 features are available in NoScript 10. 10 has a trick or not not available in 2/5.)

Well, as Chrome does, that dog, Firefox follows.
I believe this is FF, yeah, I guess it is, https://www.dslreports.com/speak/slides ... b25hbGl0eQ, so coming to your neighborhood store - soon.

Chrome settings is not my strongest knowledge area so thanks for the advice about the incognito setting.
That refreshing problem must have been temporary because I can't reproduce it any more.
But what's left is that drop down menu (or what ever you call it) incident. I still can't move the buttons/icons at all there.
