NoScript (2.6.9.21) – Mozilla FireFox Add-on Review

April 18, 2015

NoScript (2.6.9.21)

A. Ease Of Use: 3/5 – Not as easy as it should be.

Often people just end up getting very frustrated with this add-on. Which often results in the person deactivating and or un-installing this add-on. But for the people who stick around long enough. End up having a very powerful tool to help stem the tide of pop-ups , banner ads and other Internet annoyances.

B. Security: 4/5 – NoScript is very helpful in securing your computer from a lot of seen and unseen Internet threats. All across the net during your day to day activities. This add-on will not impede your security. Instead it will boost it greatly, If used correctly.

C. Usefulness: 5/5 – NoScript has enhanced my life on the net. By giving me more options to control my day to day Internet experience.

D. FireFox Slowdown: There is some lag (But will vary based on computer stats and your Internet connection)

E. Computer Slow Down: Some minor lag on older computers.

F. Type Of User I Would Recommend To Use This Add-on: A more advanced Firefox user, would find this add-on way more useful. Then a novice.

EPD 246: Fan Mail Friday’s (04/17/2015)

Dear (CSW) Team,

Why are some free wi-fi spots better than others ?

Why are some free wi-fi spots better than others ?

—————————-

Remy’s Reply: It all depends on the bandwidth and where the router is. The closer the better the signal. Often the store will shove it in some back room such as the supply closet. So your not gonna get a good signal.

Another reason could be bandwidth capping. Where the store caps the kilobytes or megabytes to such a level that is first come first serve. They can set it up so only one person can use it or 100. Depends on the place.

—————————-

Matt’s Reply: Wi-Fi Hotspots depend on a variety of conditions, such as the supplier providing the service, the strength of the bandwidth and the location of the server, how powerful the technology providing the service is and if it is maintained regularly to clear out any disruption to that service.

Also, when dealing with Wi-FI Hotspots, some of them have bandwidth or data capping, which actually regulates how many kilobytes or megabytes can be accessed per person at any one time. It will also tend to be slower during peak and busy hours as more people are using the service, so it’s best to try it during off-peak hours.
