Default Noscript alternative

I think noscript can get a bit annoying with its behavior of blocking every website by default. So when I reinstalled a new copy of firefox on windows 7, I decided to try something else out that can accomplish the same thing without being so intrusive (funny that as noscript was designed to make websites less intrusive.)

Anyways I found something that looks decent, and right now it is replacing both noscript and addblock for me. It is an addon called RequestPolicy which by default allows javascript on the given site you hit, but it doesn't allow that site to request any resources (be it java, flash, cookies, or otherwise) from any site other than the one you are visiting, unless you click in an exception much the same as you would with noscript.

Been using it a day so far, very impressed with it.
