Checking "unchecked_css"

Post by Guest » Wed Apr 28, 2021 4:09 am

Just to make sure I understand correctly:
Checking "unchecked_css" makes it unchecked and unchecking it makes it checked? :roll:
My english is too bad to come up with a clever name for it but because everything else uses nouns maybe something like "css attack" would be more obviously?

"css attack" would be more obvious, but IMHO excessive: by checking the checkbox, you're allowing the site to use any CSS without checks (not necessarily for an attack).

I guess "css threat" is excessive, too? Maybe a native english speaker can come up with something nice. "unchecked_css" is confusing.

I'm thinking of using a previous candidate, "unrestricted CSS", which we originally rejected because it seemed too long in characters for the UI layout. But the capabilities list is already two rows long no matter what on Chromium (which restricts the popup width to 800px max), so...

Maybe there is no clean win on this one :?

The problem with "unrestricted CSS" is that the current mitigation doesn't "restrict" anything, it just loads CSS differently. What about "uncontrolled CSS"?

"Do keep the name short though."
What if the name is "unsafe CSS"?

That isn't a sharp description of this capability. That reads like un-checking it would result in NoScript actually blocking some CSS. But that is not the case atm.
