Image from store Disable JavaScript
Description from store INTRODUCTION This web extension lets an user decide if JavaScript should be enabled or disabled for a given host or a given tab. FEATURES - Set the default state (JS on or JS off) - Set the disable behavior (By domain or by tab) - Use shortcuts (you can also disable this) - Use a context menu item for toggling (you can also disable this) - See your blacklisted/whitelisted domain list - Add domains manually before visiting a site - Add base domains that automatically enable/disable JS for sub domains USAGE When accessing e.g. google.com and disabling JavaScript, the web extension will block all JavaScript which otherwise would be loaded by google.com (including inline JS and external JS files from other hosts). Please note that scripts from the blacklisted host will still be loaded if they're being loaded in another host (unless you block that host as well of course). SUPPORTED BROWSERS - Mozilla Firefox (Desktop & Firefox for Android) - Google Chrome (Desktop) WHY TO USE THIS WEB EXTENSION The code is completely open source, you can also use the unpacked version of this web extension if you prefer. No data of you will ever be logged and the web extension asks only for the permissions it really needs. Pull requests are welcome! FUTURE PLANS You can see existing and add new feature proposals on the projects GitHub page (you can find the link in the about page of the web extension). SUPPORT If you need any assistance or find any bugs, feel free to contact me directly via email or use the support form in the web extension's chrome web store page.

  • (2023-10-24) Sweet Dreams: great addon, i dont have to use developer mode to disable stupid ''please disable adblocker'' messages on some websites. i dont want to disable anything! i will just add even more blockers if they force me to do it. so rude how system want us all to waste our time watching some weird ads and to open 5 tabs in background with viruses every time you click on something. no thanks. This is a must have addon.
  • (2023-05-24) Justin M: Does exactly what you'd expect. No more paywalls :)
  • (2023-04-20) KC Yang (KC): It gives more trouble(disabling Youtube) than providing solution recently.
  • (2023-03-27) Arthur Haynes: Oh yeah, this is the one I've been looking for. Not tech savy at all, and it was fast and easy and did what I wanted.
  • (2022-12-29) Joel: Works. Also mysteriously changes the appearance of google search results.
  • (2021-11-23) ꧁Diego_Góes꧂: Excelente extensão, ela é simples e muito bem feita, possui a opção de personalizar como o usuário quer bloquear o Javascript, sendo por site ou guia, isso é muito bom pois o usuário pode bloquear um site e continuar usando o YouTube por exemplo, que é totalmente dependente do Javascript. Outra funcionalidade que é um diferencial, é um atalho que pode ser ativo ao pressionar: "Alt" + "Shft" + "1", ele ativa e desativa o script sem que você precisa sair da página, útil para sites que bloqueiam a saída de tela. Meus agradecimentos aos criadores.
  • (2021-08-12) Mauri Sombowadile: Doesn't work.
  • (2021-01-21) Hunter Beast: News websites are infinitely more bearable without JavaScript. My favorite Chrome extension yet. The web is actually usable now! "JavaScript was a mistake." - Brendan Eich
  • (2020-12-21) Alberto Venturini: I've been using this extension for a couple of years. It's simple but effective. Every time I install a new copy of Chromium or Brave, this is one of the first extensions I download.
  • (2020-11-19) Reema Saleh: This is extremely useful! Easy to use and helpful for when I'm reading the news, navigating webpages, etc.
  • (2020-09-06) NoName Displayed: Not as good as the Firefox version. This one does not work as well on all sites.
  • (2020-07-26) Umang Saini: Extremely helpful extension. Must have.
  • (2020-07-23) Corey Schneider: Nice. On sites that say "disable your ad blocker", pop this on and the message goes away. Works perfectly.
  • (2020-07-09) György Raffay: Does not work, icon never appears, tried on 20 sites.
  • (2020-03-24) Dan Griffin: So incredibly easy. One click and the page reloads without javascript.
  • (2020-03-07) Thanks, i use for read news in Brazil.
  • (2019-10-06) Riley Jones: Its good. I'm testing my site with this tool.
  • (2019-09-18) Arseniy P: working good for chrome mobile. (kiwi browser on android9)
  • (2019-06-30) Ben Kirchman: Works well. Helps hide all the non-content stuff, paywalls, ads, etc. that ABP doesnt catch.
  • (2019-06-07) Party Pat: Migrated from Quick Javascript Switcher. The icon from this extension is much clearer, and option menu is more user friendly.
  • (2019-05-14) Juan Ignacio Croce: Just what i wanted, a nice and easy toggle of JavaScript per website, amazing
  • (2019-04-29) Andrew G: Excellent - it remembers which sites you disable Javascript on and blocks automatically. An important defense against incessant pop-ups among the other java interfaces.
  • (2019-02-07) vovx21: works well, good settings UI
  • (2018-12-06) Riko Naka: Yeah, this tool make me can block some annoy web js
  • (2018-10-03) JON Cunningham: WELL, this is working fine for me. A bit tricky until understood how it works, but it helps me with some sites like duckduckgo.com, etc. It stops this pop up which i hate to be bothered with, and the auto fill .glitch problem. . NOTE: I hope the publishers make things more clear on how the (Options tab) really works. As for me it was trial & error to figure it out. Thanks -
  • (2018-09-18) Gandalf Saruman: great!!! block javascript freeze click
  • (2018-09-14) Uninstalled because of one glaring flaw. The domain list only acts as a blacklist. If you set the default javascript state is to off it becomes redundant when it should be acting as a whitelist. Oh well my search continues..
  • (2018-09-07) Batutoy: thank you for this extension. Now i can make sure that no site will be able to hack me using Javascript at least without my permission. Many thanks!!!!!
  • (2018-07-06) Ken B: Finally a javascript extension that does what is says on the box. Simply great.
  • (2018-06-07) Leonardo Pimenta: The best.
  • (2018-02-25) Bruno Negrao Zica: Worked as expected. Simple to use.
  • (2018-02-16) stixxpro: ZAYEBIS!!!!! eeeeee KILL SUKA KILL!!!!

  • (2021-09-09, v:2.3.1) B B: Import/Export Settings
    I have made a lot of customized settings in the Domain List. Is there a way I can export these settings to a different browser on another computer? Thank you!
  • (2019-07-24, v:2.3.1) Ryland Whillans: Some <noscript> tags not displaying properly
    When using this extension to disable javascript on a page every second noscript tag did not display its contents. The noscript tags work fine when javascript is disabled in browser settings so there must be something in the extension that interferes with this.
  • (2019-03-07, v:2.3.1) Mikko Rantalainen: RFE: Add ability to not initiate automatic reload when I re-allow JS
    I have "disable javascript only for this tab" setting active and JS disabled for a tab. When I re-enable the JS the extension forces reload. Please, add a feature to disable the automatic reload. I sometimes want to re-allow the JS but still continue to e.g. inspect the source code before reloading the tab. I can press CTRL+R myself when I need the reload to happen.
