for scripts, it's all or nothing.

Opera does have per site content management, including enabling and disabling javascript. If you want you can disable javascript globally and enable it for particular sites.

You have spent too much of your life without noscript ;) A webpage can contain content from multiple other websites such as intellitext, facebook, twitter and other evil sites.

+10 OH MY YES

There is simply no comparing "disable javascript for this page/site" type options with NoScript. Even when such options are easy to toggle you don't get anything like the level of control, and of course usually it's far harder to deal with than NoScript so people just don't bother.
