Hot extension for Firefox: NoScripts

I took a quick look at ... [a] website ... , shortly after installing a hot extension for Firefox, and thought you might like to take a look at the overviews I got before and after training up NoScripts (by temporarily allowing Flash media). Please find attached two screenshots ([before and after,] below)....

NoScripts came so highly recommended by Rich Mogull (Should Mac users run antivirus software, TidBITs, Issue 920, March 24, 2008) that I even tried it out at home on Windows. Aside from the shock I got on first glimpse of your site index this morning, I am thoroughly pleased with how well NoScripts works, and how easy it seems to be to train.
