NoScript Firefox plugin secretly disables Adblock Plus [May. 1st, 2009|08:22 pm]

Apparently Giorgio Maone, the developer of the NoScript extension for Firefox, has been indulging in some borderline-malware tactics in order to make sure the ads on his site don’t get blocked by the (excellent and popular) Adblock Plus extension.  This is a shame, because NoScript is a genuinely useful tool, but I no longer feel comfortable using it.

Details are available at this post on the ABP blog.
