NotScripts is a break through Google Chrome extension that gives you greater control over what javascript, iframes, and plugins run in your browser to increase security and lower the CPU usage. NotScripts can help to mitigate attacks like cross-site scripting (XSS) and drive by downloads by giving you control over what third-party javascript and content loads on the sites you visit.

NotScripts uses a unique and novel method to provide this “NoScript” like functionality in Google Chrome that was not previously possible. It introduces a break through technique of intelligent HTML5 storage caching to over come the limitations in Google Chrome that prevented an extension like this from being made before. This is one of the key extensions that many people have been waiting for since Google Chrome came out.

NotScripts is inspired by the “NoScript” addon for Firefox and seeks to emulate it within the limitations of the Google Chrome extensions API. It is not affiliated with “NoScript“, I just happen to like it’s functionality and wanted it on Google Chrome.
