Hi SpeedyPC,

With fx you have the best there is NoScript. ScriptSafe is a google friendly solution ( and whitelisted by default comes

Trust Domain | Xtalkgadget.google.com
Trust Domain | Xgoogle.nl
Trust Domain | Xtranslate.googleapis.com
Trust Domain | Xmaps.gstatic.com
Trust Domain | Xurlquery.net  = my personal preferred setting
Trust Domain | Xyoutube.com
Trust Domain | Xs.ytimg.com )

What I like about ScriptSafe is the easy handling.
Your preferred settings are at once synced for all of you google environment...

The more you think here, the more you realize what an absurd idea HTTPS Everywhere actually is.
Also falls into the realm of false security through obscure HTTPS security settings...

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

Hi Dwarden,

Like this ScriptSafe a lot and it combines beautifully with NotScripts,

Damian

while You can combine them, there is really no reason to keep using NotScripts when You installed ScriptSafe

ScriptSafe was written as successor (replacement) of the NotScripts ...

Point taken Guys. (Polonus, David, Bob)
All very excellent points and has caused me to remove the https everywhere add-on from FF. ;)

Hi schmidthouse,

You are welcome and that is what a good discussion in a thread here should lead to that is -> "gained insight".
That is why I still hang out here after all these 8 years.
And it is not only others, you also will educate yourself where security issues are concerned.
Conclusion:
As we stand on each other's shoulders we see more and learn to see more...

Hi SpeedyPC,

What is also neat from ScriptSafe is the RATING on "API dot MyWot dot com" bringing up the WOT results for a blocked resource link.
Very heplfull. HTTPS Everywhere is blurring the access to such info...

Absolutely! Also the reason I am a proud member of this forum.
Definitely not for "Post counts" ;)

Like David, it's a tool I don't use. I prefer avast! to be in charge in keeping me safe on the net. :)
KUDOS TO THE 'NTH POWER ON THIS ONE!!!

Id even enable the WebRep tool vs using WOT if it wasn't just what users thought of a website.  I think that type of 'computing' (leave the old subject of WHY webrep is what it is alone here) can end up more harmful that being infected.  If the whole site is only rated by users as good but maintains UNSAFE trackings/cookies/etc., then whats the point of the tool to begin with?

But really Bob... big kudos to your comment.  I feel very passionate toward this mentality as well.

And it can even be achieved even more comprehensively than with the webrep & WOT combination like with the following examples:
Here we have a three in one resource: http://checkwebsitesafe.net/www/rakhe.com
And if you want more, then here we have over 29 scan resources combined: http://scanurl.net/?u=rakhe.com&uesb=Check+This+URL#results
(launched with one click from a bookmarklet) -> http://scanurl.net/?u=   

And for the bob3160 logic? It will come with avast evangelism...

I would call it common sense, nothing to do with being an 'evangle' or not.  That or my status needs to be honorarily upgraded (NOT) cause Iv had that position for some time now... since v2.
