NoScript for Firefox
Prevent scripts from running in Firefox with NoScript

Web plugins such as Flash, Java and JavaScript can be used to add a range of interesting features to web sites, but there are also a number of downsides. In addition to reducing the performance of sites, there is also the potential for scripts to be used for malicious purposes. NoScript is a Firefox addon that can be used to prevent the running of scripts on the sites you visit.

The addon automatically blocks all such content, but there may well be occasions when you need it to run. When you encounter such as site, you can easily add it to a whitelist so that scripts will be allowed to run now and in the future - ideal for banking and shopping sites.

You can choose to be notified when a script is blocked, so should a site fail to function as expected you can opt to enable individual page elements as required. The settings you choose to use can be quickly backed up by saving them as a bookmark so they can be restored when you have to reinstall, or transferred to another computer.

With hardly any user intervention required, NoScript offers a superb level of protection against site borne security threats and ensures that you have full control over what is allowed to run in your browser window.

Version 10.1.7 (changelog):

x "Needed type" feedback in Custom preset for data: and blob: fonts (thanks skriptimaahinen for report)
+ Pressing DEL while left-mousing down on a fixed/absolutely positioned element of a script-disabled page removes it, allowing users to dismiss in-content popup "windows" and blocking overlays
x Fixed changing sites permission resets local preferences regression from 10.1.7rc1 (thanks pal1000 for report)
x Fixed data: and blob: fonts not blocked even if the "font" permission is not given to the main document (thanks skriptimaahinen for report and preliminary patch)
+ "Appearance|List full addresses in the permissions popup" option, off by default, to simplify the popup UI
+ "webgl" requirement feedback in CUSTOM permissions
+ "webgl" placeholder wherever possible + Activated beta channel updates from
+ WebGL blocking now honored on scripted pages x Quantum RC versions are hosted on from now on due to beta channel deprecation on AMO


A small and simple addon that places you firmly in control of the web sites you visit

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.31

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.
