Using NoScript is pretty easy if you don't try and micro-manage it. Allow (whitelist) your most trusted and frequently visited sites just once. "Temporarily allow all on this page" for trusted sites you don't frequently visit. Don't allow anything you don't completely trust to run JS.

This is why I haven't switched to Chrome.

Yeah WTH? Why didn't they make a three number triad, with each number from 0-40,000. It would look similar to IP addresses, eg: 185.38921.7823
Works everywhere the same without looking up words in a thousand different dictionaries.

As a matter of fact, I think I'll put together a service to translate What3Numbers to What3Words and Long/Lat.
