  1. Microsoft has issued an advanced notification for the next Patch Tuesday, which falls on February 8. This month's patch cycle includes 12 security bulletins, three of which are ranked "critical," Microsoft's highest severity rating, while the remaining nine are classified "important." In all, 22 vulnerabilities will be fixed, including several that allow an attacker to gain control of Windows.

    It would be nice if the next version of Windows didn't require a monthly Patch Tuesday schedule and well as the need to reboot after every major update.

    Why hold back? It would be nice if there was a version of "No Script" for opera as well.
     
  6. Opera does built in, and that doesn't satisfy your needs then you can get the No Script extension.

    Tools - Quick Preferences (F12) > Uncheck Enable Javascript

    Simple really, and it's on a site by site basis.

    Or the No Ads, No Script Extension:
