Firefox Addon: No Script


One of security holes on any browser is the fact that they allow Javascript to run. Unlike php or asp, Javascript is client based script and it's very dangerous because Javascript loads in instant and processed on the background. NoScript helps fixing this hole by disabling scripts and then it lets us know if script's disabled. If you want to enable it, there's an option to do so from NoScript.

Not only does it block Javascript, it blocks Flash and Microsoft Silverlight as well. Even if you have installed flashblock, install this add on as well. And there's also a configuration panel to make a whitelist that lets you decide which sites that are allowed to run script on your browser. It has also quick access function to costumize the way NoScript acts just by clicking its icon on Firefox footer, making it's very versatile.

The initial configuration should be enough for most environment, you can modify it on the fly later when you browse sites but since almost all scripts are blocked, websites' appearances will be affected as well unless we put our favorite websites on the whitelist. That being said, as good as it is, this Addon makes it hard for common people that just want to surf internet casually. Not all people have patience to do so (manually configuring the way NoScript acts). ^^

Overall, this is a good addon. I recommend it to be installed on your Firefox.

Hello,

I don't mind you using one of my renders, as long as you credit me for it somewhere on your blog. A link back to my blog would be fine.

Any of the renders can be downloaded from flickr by clicking on a render on my blog. On the flickr page, if u click the 'all sizes' button it shows the different image sizes available.

You can use a direct link to that render from flickr or download it and host it yourself.

Thank you
