I run with javascript disabled by default and I whitelist sites like superuser or gmail as needed. Sometimes though, a blog that I'll never read again requires js to get anything more than a blank page (argh). It doesn't make sense that I should have to put a permanent whitelist entry when I'll never visit that site again and just want to read a blog post.

Is there a way to "run all javascript this time" akin to how it's done for plugins? Is there an extension that manages javascript whitelisting?

Check out ScriptNo in the chrome store. The extension makes managing a JavaScript whitelist much easier and includes the allow scripts for this session feature.

Thanks for the suggestion, it looks like a very complete extension with a lot of features. But, it seems to ignore all of my existing whitelisting. I'd rather have something that works with Chrome's list rather than sits over top of it. I might make the switch if nothing else comes about. – jjt Oct 22 '12 at 20:46
