If you’re big into using the Firefox Web browser, you probably already know about NoScript, but just in case you’re new to Firefox or if you haven’t started using it yet, here’s a brief description for you. We here at WorldStart have actually mentioned NoScript in a couple other tips before, but we’ve never really focused in on it as much as we should have. And I figured today would be as good a day as any to take care of that. So, whether you’re already using NoScript or you’re just hearing about it today, let’s see what we’ve got!

First of all, NoScript is a Firefox add on and it has been around for quite some time. In fact, it won the “PC World Class Award” back in 2006 and it is still going strong! It is one of the most popular add ons available for Firefox today. So, what does NoScript do? Well, it’s a tool that basically adds extra protection to your Firefox browser. In other words, it only allows JavaScript, Java, Flash and other plug-ins to run on the Web sites you choose and trust, such as your online bank. All other sites are blocked by NoScript. Sounds like a deal to me!

NoScript also aids in preventing cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks. With its features, NoScript is able to stop any security vulnerabilities from being exploited and it also keeps your Firefox up and running with no loss of functionality. If you do some research on NoScript, you will find that many experts and average users alike agree that Firefox really is a lot safer with NoScript. If you’d like to get in on the action, you can download NoScript right here. Just click on the Install Now button and you’ll be on your way to a more secure and safe Firefox. Oh yeah!
