Re: What adblock addon are you using along with NoScript?
Posted: Fri Jul 15, 2016 6:53 pm
Well to start with, even someone who wants to use µMatrix for script & plugin blocking can benefit from the "additional" features of NoScript, such as those you mentioned, surrogate script, inclusion type checking, etc.
Again, just because µMatrix can do one thing NoScript does doesn't make the addons redundant to each other. µMatrix is a domain-based firewall for the browser (mostly deals with the network requests) while NoScript is a security suite that mostly deals with what happens locally. Totally different things and in my opinion it's wise to have both.

Don't know about self desctructing cookies but it's certainly not a browser default. Well maybe Pale Moon does something like this but I haven't regularly used it in too long to be sure. Other browsers certainly don't.
Does a site exist to test the management?
I don't know of one offhand. Any site that's served over HTTPS and sets cookies that are *not* flagged as isSecure can be used to test, and any advanced cookie viewer or cookie manager could be used to check the results. (IIRC Pale Moon has such a cookie viewer built in)

Exactly, so if only one or the other causes problems, then you make exception in one but still have protection of the other on the site.

It ships default with this rule in SYSTEM:
