If you’re security savvy, or follow a privacy and security blog like PrivaSecTech, you know that the most popular way hackers get into systems these days is through scripts (flash or java usually). As such, there are plugins for most browsers now, like NoScripts for Firefox or NotScripts for Chrome which block all scripts by default, unless you manually authorize them. Using such a plugin in your broswer is arguably more effect than having anti-virus installed these days!

What does your website look like when someone views it using a script blocker? Is it still functional? partially functioning? completely unusable? What about your employer’s website? You could be losing a lot of visitors and/or revenue if it’s not easy to read or use your website with scripts blocked, it’s usually best to remove them if they’re not absolutely necessary.

Install a script blocker in your browser and see how your website is affected!
