    Chrome is becoming more capable every day. Nice article. Thanks for the tips.

    NotScript! Why is it not on the list?

    A year ago, in response to someone’s inquiry about the availability of noscript, the answers were… "The reason is very simple: Chrome is still lacking the required infrastructure for selective script disablement and object blocking."

    Then in March, Giorgio Maone appeared to be on his way to providing noscript for Chrome. The issue remaining was 3rd party scripts.

    In August NotScript was announced! Now it’s averaging over 3,000 downloads a week.

    Where are we? The issue, or bag of issues, is complex enough to be beyond my ability to make sense of it. I suppose that the discussion gets even more complicated by the fact that Windows Chrome has sandboxing and Linux Chrome does not. I hope that Zinovski, or another clear talker, will let us know whether the user of Chrome can have the the equivalent functionality of noscript.

    If the day is here, or 90% here, then NotScript should be on top of the list.

    Hi Zinovsky,

    I recently released the SearchMark extension that allows the user to search their bookmarked page contents (not just URLs). The extension basically downloads all the pages, strips the HTML, and stores them in the included SQLite database. It then provides an interface to search the database. I find it very useful to retrieve an old bookmark that I saved and don’t remember their name/title anymore. It has 50 users at the moment. Hope you will check it out!https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/cidphbjheamggcklpgfibhdhkkgpnbkm?hl=en-gb
