The add-on works as expected, and I tend to concur with the author's design philosophy; however I find rather limited usefulness owing to the lack of granularity. It would be wonderful if one could control exactly which scripts are disabled, as many sites use a great many, a number of which are essential to the functioning of the content on the page.
NoScript can be quite paranoid... you must go through a tedious trial of enabling scripts on many sites that use a bucketload of them, and it would be much easier if I could simply kill of the few I know to be hogging the page. I believe a tool such as YesScript would be much more useful if it behaved much like the Other One, but in reverse. The problem is that many noxious scripts aren't loaded until other requisite scripts are running, and this leads to the "enable/test/enable_another_one/test_again" cycle of NoScript.
I'll keep this handy, and I hope to see another "fatter" version in the future, keep up the good work!
