The newest version of NoScript, which enhances user security by selectively blocking JavaScript, Java, Flash and other plugins, runs on Android and Maemo phones and tablets.

"The release of NoScript Anywhere includes a variety of new features, but it's the support for Firefox Mobile that is the big attraction," writes Threatpost's Dennis Fisher. "The add-on for Android devices is meant to mimic the desktop version, giving users the ability to set permissions for each individual site and use a default policy for restricting content."

"NoScript also now includes an anti-clickjacking feature and an anti-XSS filter designed to protect users from cross-site scripting attacks," Fisher writes.
