    Firefox has been my main browser b/c Safari 4 was slower for me and also no Noscript. Safari 5 though is noticable faster for me and I'd like to go back. Malicious javascript is still a concern, even if remote. I use clicktoflash, but that only blocks flash. Is there a plugin or extension that will block javascript on a page unless I allow it or whitelist it?

    I don't believe so CC, but Chrome has it. I said bye-bye to FF yesterday and nailed a few extension for chrome that fit my style. Wicked fast, no spinning beach balls:cool:

    Enable the 'Develop' menu in Safari. (Preferences->Advanced->"Show Develop Menu in menu bar") There's a "Disable Javascript" option in that menu in addition to several other useful options.

    There's no "whitelisting" option, but you can turn Javascript on and off easily. No plugin or extension required.
