    Felicitations to you and your great efforts. Compared to the other contenders and given NoScript's scope and features, it's a no-brainer best security/privacy add-on.

    You're you're welcome welcome!

    (psst! -- check the "many thanks" sentence! ;-)

    Seriously, no one should use the web without it, and I hope you'll continue efforts to make it more noob-friendly (first-run splash screen, compiled built-in F1 help file, etc.), so that eventually, it can be a default part of Fx. Now, *that* would be a win-win-win. Cheers.

    I don't know what else to do but leave you a message here. I absolutely loved how it worked; and now it doesn't for some reason. Is there a place where I can get help with noscript?
