    I much prefer a good hosts file (hpHosts, it blocks more than just ads) and DNT+. Better browsing continuity and safety.

    i usually block the js when it is causing the problem with the site

    it is generally enabled until i have a problem
    then killing it often fixes teh problems

    Also the Noscript plugin will help with javascript, but bear in mind that many sites do use javascript for genuine purposes and you could break something by blocking it.

    another update

    some of the krappush scripts check for js on and will hang if its turned off
    dont know what they are doing to my pc but i am sure i dont want to let them do it

    so some sites i cannot access because i refuse to let my pc be a target for scumware
    their loss

    i have too many sites to look at to worry about one that wants to screw me over and trying to help them do it
