Summary

Winner of the "PC World - World Class Award" and bundled with the Tor Browser, NoScript gives you the best available protection on the web. It allows JavaScript, Flash, and other executable content to run only from trusted domains of your choice (e.g. your banking site), thus mitigating remotely exploitable vulnerabilities, such as Spectre and Meltdown.

It protects your "trust boundaries" against cross-site scripting attacks (XSS), cross-zone DNS rebinding / CSRF attacks (router hacking), and Clickjacking attempts, thanks to its unique ClearClick technology.

Such a preemptive approach prevents exploitation of security vulnerabilities (known and unknown!) with no loss of functionality where you need it. Experts do agree: Firefox is really safer with NoScript!

Recent reviews
This addon is really nice, until recently. For whatever reason, it was completely reset on all my devices, so I am in the process of ADDING back all the custom setting and it is annoying... I almost uninstalled it.

Absolute necessity: it's the closest a user can get to controlling the execution flow of the browser without intervening at the source level, which would require someone to build the project from source

A recent change broke a website, and refreshing the extension didn't help.
