It's true that NoScript requires some management... and that bothered me too at first. But you can have Noscript remember your choices for sites you decide to trust and after a while you only have to do it for websites you visit infrequently. You get used to it after a while. At least I did.

If you are really 'paranoid', I guess that the safest browser would be one that does not do any scripts, images or cookies. Something like lynx/links or w3m on Linux/BSD.
