NoScript Extension Made Available for Google Chrome

In early April the very well-known Firefox extension NoScript became available for Google Chrome. This extension should still be considered beta as detailed in this ZDNet article but it’s fast approaching a stable status expected later this month.

This extension helps to reduce the attack surface of your web browser by only executing (allowing to run) JavaScript (defined) for the websites that you have allowed. This reduces the possibility of exploitation of vulnerabilities and reduces/eliminated online adverts. Unfortunately, due to limitations within Chrome; the anti-XSS (cross site scripting)(defined) filter of NoScript cannot be implemented at this time). Further background on NoScript is available from here.

Thank you.
