Summary

FEATURES

• Allow or block JavaScript globally. • Allow or block JavaScript for multiple domains. • Allow or block JavaScript for individual domains. • Light and dark theme preferences.

LIMITATIONS

Chrome only allows 5000 simple rules (single domain) and 1000 complex rules (multiple domains). If you think you need more rules you may want to try an extension like NoScript or uBlock Origin that may not be using Chrome's new rule based technology.

Script Control modifies security headers at low level to allow or block JavaScript. If you are using another security focused extension that is using the same technique, one or both extensions may interfere with each other.

Easy to use and works great!

This is a browser extension I would recommend to my friends and family that want to increase their security by selectively allowing JavaScript, but don't want to spend a lot of time fiddling with the settings in other more complicated tools. The interface is simple and intuitive. The icon lets you know if JavaScript is blocked or allowed on the current website, and if you want to change that it is very easy to add a "block" or "allow" rule without having to navigate away from the webpage. As soon as you add a rule, your webpage will reload to enforce the new rule. Script Control will remember your setting for all future visits to that website. If you want to get more complex and add *.domain rules that allow all the subdomains of a domain, you can do that; you can also easily view and manage your rules in the options page. There are UI preferences too, to suit your preferences for light and dark. But you never need to delve into any options or scrutinize your rules. Just browse the web as normal, and if you want to change the JavaScript setting on whatever site you are looking at, you can get it done in two clicks. And that's the best part, because the easier you make security to use, the more likely people are to use it.
