Driving me crazy.
If you only visit a handful of sites you can choose the "Allow" option instead of the "Temporarily Allow" option.
"Allow" adds the script to a whitelist, so you shouldn't have to authorise it again next time.

The other advantage of having it is that it speeds page loading, because all the background junk is blocked.
Agreed.
Surfing the web is so much more enjoyable once most of the so-called "content" has been blocked.

IMO, no ordinary webpage requires 100+ scripts to function correctly and webpages that do are prime candidates for hackers to insert malicious scripts.
Any sites that require more than a handful of scripts to be authorised I avoid in future sessions.

When I'm forced to use IE to access government websites, the experience is always horrible.

After ~30 minutes the IE cache has literally hundreds of MBs of garbage in it.
Despite all of this caching every page loads so slowly (even pages that you have just visited).
It seems like every ad loads before any real content appears.
I usually shut IE down as soon as the auto-play videos start blaring.

It's not exactly that it can't tell good script from bad it is only designed to block all scripts hence the name. The name isn't no bad script it's no script.

I use Firefox with NoScript.

What I can't stand is certain sites where you need to allow scripting for something like 20+ items just to read the comments at the end of the articles. And, most of the time you can't allow them all in one go - takes about 2, 3 or 4 'temporarily allow' clicks in NoScript to get to the comments.

Nowadays, if I can't get to the comments with 1 or 2 NoScript 'temporarily allow' clicks then I just give up and go elsewhere.
