I have to setup a browser to surf the internet trying to stay safe from malware as much as possible(i already know that there’s no way to stay safe at 100%)
My idea is: use Firefox with this extensions: Adblock Plus, uBlock Origin, HTTPS Everywhere and mostly NoScript Security Suite. I also thought to clear cache when Firefox is closed(https://superuser.com/questions/461574/does-clearing-the-browser-cache-provide-real-security-benefits).
But since I’m not an expert, i searched on the internet infos and i read this: https://security.stackexchange.com/a/27957 and he said:
disabling JS should not be considered a silver bullet for browser security
Take into consideration that NoScript will also increase the attack surface
Before reading this, i was pretty sure that No Script would have been enough to make browser very very safe. But now I’m wondering if there are safest ways to secure the browser, and now i have these questions:
Is my idea good? If so, what can i improve?
Should I use Chrome instead of Firefox? (I read this https://security.stackexchange.com/a/113 so i’m asking it)
Are the extensions that i mention above good?(i know that both Adblock Plus and uBlock Origin block more or less same ads, but i prefer to keep both. Browser performance is not a problem)
is there any other extension that I should install?
there is some other browser setting that i should enable/disable (such as the option to clear cache when Firefox is closed)?
I already know basic rules, such as update browser and OS, don’t open unsafe link etc etc. I would like to know advanced tips. I know that it also depends on the operating system and other stuff, but in this topic i would like to talk about the browser
PS: I know that instead of No Script I could just disable global scripts from browser settings, but i like the way i can allow a script in a site, because some sites could not works without a specific script
PPS: Sorry for my bad english
