no-script for firefox, none of these filers work very well. – rook Oct 1 '13 at 16:30

Chrome ( and most likely Firefox ) already prevent execution of scripts when they are given in for example the URL parameter, maybe even other things like a request body, and then proceed to give you a warning.

See also Does Google Chrome protect against cross site scripting (XSS)?

Also when you search for XSS prevention in the chrome extension store, you will get results.

That website sends an http header of "X-XSS-Protection:0", you can guess what that does. You cannot use that website to test a browser's XSS Protection. See also this question – Philipp Oct 1 '13 at 15:11
Nice. But now I am making a simple page and running it on apache local server, still reflected xss happening – Naman Oct 1 '13 at 17:01
What would you say about – Naman Oct 1 '13 at 17:04
That is a page where javascript reads the input field and just appends the text as html, the xss data does not come from a request... – Philipp Oct 2 '13 at 7:24
