Sorry if I shouldn't make a request here, could QupZilla be made to use Firefox addons?

These are ones I'd like to see added if possible;

DownThemAll
NoScript
RequestPolicy

THANKS

These are the plugins written specifically for Firefox. Which means, we can only write plugins from scratch that will have the same or almost the same functionality these Firefox's plugins provide (we may not use the same name, also). Which, again, is a terrible amount of work. :)
By the way, the NoScript request already exists: #98

Edit: RequestPolicy request also exists: #591

@ghost

GREAT, I really hope we'll see a lot of plugins being offered, it's a bit of a make or break for browsers these days if there aren't any good ones to use, especially the privacy/security ones...

PLEASE try to include DownThemAll & RequestPolicy...

RequestPolicy is an excellent plugin...

THANKS

Did you notice, that QupZilla comes with a basic XSS auditing functionality? It can be enabled in Preferences -> Browsing -> Enable XSS auditing.
You might want to check http://userscripts.org to look for a script, that allows downloading web content similar to your needs.

@ghost

Thanks JHooverman, but I don't really have time to look...

For a download manager alternative, I wouldn't be concerned with the quality of the script, but when it comes to NoScript and RequestPolicy, I don't think there's going to be any alternative substitutes that can compare...

THANKS again.. :)

Hi,

I would like to ask also that NoScript have support in QupZilla, this is a must for QupZilla.

What's the QupZilla teams thoughts on NoScript?

I can tell you right now without it websites load slower with all the crap a lot of them use.

I really hope this is going to be incorporated into QupZilla.

As said above, all plugins, that have been written for Firefox are not compatible to QupZilla. As a consequence they have to be re-written from scratch, which is a lot of work.
AFAIC I am happy with AdBlock and the subscriptions EasyList + EasyPrivacy, which already filter a lot of *.js related crap.

@ghost

Remember it's not just about the secuity and this is filtering you are talking about, but NoScript blocks a lot of analysis types of sites, and all the various website tools, ads, security, tracking, and the list goes on, that a webadmin/site might want to use for their so called benefit. I hope all the QupZilla developers are very aware of this? It's one very big beneift you get by using NoScript you don't get in other addons, and if you do, then please correct me and show me, because I've never seen any...

I hope that the QupZilla developers might consider approaching NoScript and asking if they might consider developing this for QupZilla...

So beyond all the so called benefits of Adblock, EasyList + EasyPrivacy, and this *.js related crap you are talking about, NoScript speeds up browsing by blocking domains, Adblock does not do this, in this manner.

If no one believes what I'm saying, then I'm surprised the developers are not aware of this fact, compare the speed at which a website loads with NoScript running blocking everything by default and compare that to the speed at which QupZilla loads a site, and if you're not amazed at this, then something is wrong, because the speed differences are amazing, and because of it, this is why everyone should at least be using NoScript...

Oh and then let's not forget all these domains a site uses sometimes aren't always loading so great, server issues, congestion, etc, then you are stuck sitting and waiting, another great reason for NoScript, just blocking these bad running servers from ever loading. I can't begin to tell you how many sites I constantly run across on a daily basis with all these servers jugging along and waitig on a site to load, or ones that never load, or takes a minute, sometimes even longer, and again if the developers are not aware of this fact, yet another great reason for NoScript.

So I hope again the QupZIlla team will seriously look at this and either make a NoScript plugin or an alternative that works.

That's not entirely true. You can block domains with adblock (||domain.com rule will do just that). And also AdBlock speeds the loading time exactly the same as NoScript.

@ghost

In NoScript you do not have to write any rules all domains are blocked by default, of course NoScript ships with a default Whitelist, I'm not talking about these, you can certainly remove them...

So I don't understand how you're going to block all domains by default, then allow them at the click of a mouse as easily as you can in NoScript?

@ghost

I agree that NoScript is a simpler solution that blocks domains by default without any user intervention. So if somehow this can be made to work in a similar manner in QupZilla with Adblock that would be great.

@ghost

So can we please have some communication, I'd like to hear more on the subject, what ideas the QupZilla team has in store for this?

thank you

@ghost

Anyone?

thanks

First of all, this issue is closed. You should post it to the NoScript plugin issue (in qupzilla-plugins).
And about NoScript plugin, I'd like to have it, but there are more important features to be done at the moment.
