Malwarebytes seems to have done me well over the years. Only wish i could have gotten more lifetime subscriptions back when i still had the chance.
If I get to a website that doesn't function with noscript running I question whether I really want to see whatever their website shows anyways. If the answer is yes then I'll temporarily allow the main topsite in question. If it still doesn't function after that then I seriously question whether they're worth my time. If the scum want to risk my computer all so they can harvest personal data about me and shove lies and ads in my face that I'm not going to fall for anyways then they can eat dirt and I don't need to see their garbage website anyways. If I'm trying to buy a product and they can't even make their website function correctly without a billion scripts running then I don't want their trash product anyways.
Websites like newegg are a good example. You can get most functionality by just allowing newegg.com (.ca), but there are a few extra scripts in there to allow things like pictures of products or the review blurbs. For a site I really want to check out and I know is probably safe like newegg I'll grant allowances to different scripts until the website functions correctly. But I still don't see a need to allow garbage like adsense or whatever. Or amazon, allowing amazon.ca works fine, but if I want to get the mouseover closeup view of products there's another script in there that needs to be allowed.
A major website like amazon can have like 15 or 20 different scripts all told, but you only need to allow a handful to get the website to function. It can be a chore to dig through them all to find the ones that you need but so be it.
And for things like doing job related orientations online at places like shells website where having noscript running will just screw everything up I have a clean and basic chrome that I can fire up without any addons, that I use for very specific and limited instances where I "know" I'm safe.
