I like a streamlined configuration, without too many overlapping extensions: a password manager, an adblock, and one for privacy.
The rest is needless.

Why more powerful?So why then not just use uMatrix? It's also more powerful then NoScript and have a better UI
I prefer to have it in my pc Noscript + UBO are a perfect symbiosis......Hill wants to switch to using a maintained list of known offenders that uBlock Origin (UMatrix will support this as well) will process while leaving any other hostname untouched.......
Keep it simple
You are using so much legacy stuff, that you create an image of a man who is to old to adopt to new technology. Come on you are never to old to learn something new. Let's do something different and try some recent stuff like uMatrix. Give uMatrix a try, you will love its granularity. I use it in a lazy manner (with the small W3Tech hostfile), have it blocking third-party by default and allow the websites I use to visit (I use Opera for for surfing).
When you imagine the protection as a matrix on which the websites are the rows and the content-types are the columns it becomes real easy to create rules by pointing and clicking on the uMatrix user interface. From a user interface design perspective it is brilliantly simple. Anyone who has ever worked with a spreadsheet will easily familiarize with uMatrix.

N.B. CSS = stylesheet and XHR = XmlHttpRequest
The rules are listed in a different tab. It is easier to read the rules from right to left: (maybe Mr. Gorhill speaks arabic?) e.g.
* * * block = BLOCK all content OF all websites ON all websites (* = all)
* * image allow = ALLOW image(s) OF all websites ON all websites
com * 1st-party * allow = ALLOW all content OF 1st-party websites ON com websites (e.g. malwaretips.com)
nos.nl ster.nl * block = BLOCK all content OF ster.nl website ON NOS.nl website
* adservice.google.nl * block = BLOCK all content OF adservice.google.nl website ON all websites
* * * block
* * css allow
* * image allow
* * media allow
com 1st-party * allow
net 1st-party * allow
nl 1st-party * allow
org 1st-party * allow
As @SeriousHoax mentioned you will love the graularity of uMatrix, with one click I can enable all (except websites blocked by W3Tech host file)
av-comparatives.org * * allow
av-test.org * * allow
azerty.nl * * allow
bbc.com * * allow
cnn.com * * allow
foxnews.com * * allow
hardware.info * * allow
infosecurity.nl * * allow
nos.nl * * allow
nu.nl * * allow
thewindowsclub.com * * allow
tweakers.net * * allow
When my ultra small blocklists misses an ad or tracker it is simple point and click to block it for the current domain or for all
nos.nl ster.nl * block
* adservice.google.nl * block
