A suggestion for NoScript

Post by Elbobo » Fri Jan 15, 2010 1:53 pm

Ive been using noscript a lot, and sometimes i end up allowing scripts globally as having noscript enabled slows down my browsing experience as i have to "allow" websites all the time.

heres my suggestion: since there is only an option to have no script on of off, it would be usefull to have an option to "only allow scripts for the current domain"

that is to only allow javascript from the actual site in the url. this would be very handy as you still are protected against external js, but allowing the site your visiting, and also a lot of advertisements and malware use javascript on an external site.

im not sure how hard this would be to add to noscript, maybe have the current browser url in the temporary whitelist?

I'll admit I didn't understand what that option was all about. I just went back to read more about this option and the selection settings associated with it and could find information. Would this be a good addition to the FAQ?
