Getting sick of Firefox, does Chrome have a decent script blocker?

#1ThunderPotatoPosted 8/15/2013 8:19:02 PM
It seems to have many script blockers, but no clear winner like Firefox's NoScript add on. I need a browser that doesn't crash all the time, which isn't Firefox since the last update.

Yeah, can't say I'm going to switch to a fairly unknown browser based off one person's completely undetailed recommendation, but I'll keep it in mind I guess.

Fairly unknown to you, perhaps.

If AMD goes down Intel might safely release i9 for $300 and i7 for $200 and i5 for $100 and i3 for free. - su27Chaos

Based on my searches, fairly unknown to the rest of the internet, sorry.

It's well known from what I've seen. I'm using it now.

You don't need an add-on for that in Chrome. You can just turn off Java-script for all sites and set up a list where things are not blocked. It's all built into the browser.

Just check content settings. You can manage basically everything in there and as long as you are signed in to Chrome it will have these settings on all of your devices.

That is far more tedious and gives much less control than NoScript. That isn't an acceptable alternative really.

Just throwing it out there. You will be hard-pressed to match Firefox add-ons across the board unless you use Firefox itself or one of its derivatives.

There is one here but I highly doubt it is as good as No Script:

You could try to use Pale Moon:

http://www.palemoon.org/

It's just another version of Firefox optimized for Windows and it takes out things most users don't need (like accessibility features and the like) to speed up the browser. It's very nice.

Other than that, I can't be of much more help.

I'm getting the impression there's no such thing as a safe and stable browser then. I want to be able to block individual scripts, not site wide. That's useless.
