NotScripts was a free and open-source extension for Google Chrome, Chromium, and Opera web browsers.[1][2] NotScripts blocked execution of JavaScript, Java, Flash, Silverlight, and other plugins and scripted content. NotScripts used a whitelist to allow execution of scripts from certain sites.[3]

NotScripts has been abandoned by the developer. It was removed from the Chrome Extension store in September 2014.

Reception[edit]

NotScripts was described by Martin Brinkmann of Ghacks as the first extension to bring some of NoScript's functionality to Chrome.[1] In comparison, he remarked that NoScript on Firefox additionally offered cross-site scripting (XSS) protection.[2]

ScriptBlock[edit]

The extension was picked up by another developer and continued under the name ScriptBlock.[4][5]
