Yep. True. As yet another side effect, running NoScript drastically reduces the amount of memory wasted on unwanted garbage. Minimal or no javascript or any other scripting leads to much less memory consumed on stuff that would be better used on loading the actual pages you want to read. When you've got my problem (not enough memory for the number of tabs you typically have open), this can delay the inevitable swapping for a while. I noticed that many major news sites are bad for this, and of all the sites I visit Slashdot is probably the biggest offender... but it relies so much on javascript it's not really a good idea to keep it disabled on that site. /. is the main exception I can think of.
