Why you should use NoScript
Sounds simple, right? Well, NoScript has a lot more features and options, feel free to install it and take a look at its documentation and features, it is really worth it.
Well, the answer is for security reasons. Exactly as when I do a network firewall setup, I prefer to go with a block by default, then allow what is needed policy in my browser. I think this is a very good idea, specially if you take in account things like this bugs here:
Moving through the big city
It had been a while since the last time I did this
(image from the wikipedia)
Eleven days ago I hopped into a plane in A Coruña. That was the first part
of a trip that would take me to Barcelona, then Athens, then the island
of Naxos, in the Aegean Sea. We were going to have another
International Pizza sprint, but that's a totally different story, I just
wanted to add some context for this short story.
Yesterday I arrived in Piraeus around 15:00, as part of my trip back home. I
did step down the boat (Blue Star Naxos) and I went to the Piraeus Metro
I was a bit excited. Moving around big cities is something that always excites
me, specially if I'm not in a hurry to get quickly somewhere. I like to take my
time, see what is happening around me and try to stop and watch even the
Before going to the Metro station, I gave my bigger backpack to my friend
Panos, so he and Oscar could take it on their motorbikes. Then I picked up the
smaller backpack and a bigger piece of luggage, one of those harder suitcases

I left the clothes ready the day before, in the living room, so there is where
I go after preparing breakfast (coffee, milk, bread and cheese).
I take it easy, eating slowly. It is always really hard to have breakfast so
early, but today I manage quite well and I eat it all up. The bike is ready
already, I put my cycling clothes on and I double check again that I have
everything with me (Phone, Garmin, HR Sensor, GoPro, spare tube, tools...).
Then I pick up Sascha's Jake to get outside.
Today we have planned to go on a longer ride together, Sascha and me. We will
do the Apollonas round (clockwise), a route that covers something like 100
kms around the island of Naxos. We will pass by beaches, villages, valleys
And I am pretty sure we will have looots of fun
