I no longer use NoScript, having since switched to uMatrix
and hence apart from generally running sans js, also w/o
referencing most external "resources".

As to defaults, I noticed when setting up an iPhone that Safari
defaulted to having javascript disabled, and have had no
need to alter that.  Given that the option is/was under an
"advanced" area, I wonder how many normal users leave it
disabled?
