There seems to be a prevailing attitude of, 'don't worry about catchable errors, nobody should be running with that debugging option on anyway.' these days. I judge a site by it's errors. There are occasions where it's so bad that any move of the mouse triggers the bad event which even makes it difficult to close the page.
...you get first a cookie-popup - close *click*, then maybe even cookie choices - show *click*, if you are lucky with an "opt-out-all" button, but in many cases you need to disable them one-by-one *clickediclickedcklickediclickiclick*... then chrome shows its popup "this site wants to send notifications" -> decline *click*, then... MAYBE finally the content of the site, and 3 seconds later the email-popup appears... oh no... wait! first the popup "please disable your adblocker" - *click*... THEN maybe the register/email thing... **CLLLLIIIIICKKKKKKK** *mouse button breaks* *rage-quit*
I rarely can stand this mess long enough to even SEE that email-popup because I closed the site already before.
in fact, the EU destroyed the internet almost entirely for me. I have 2 news-sites that are still accessible and some dev-sites, like CP, SO, ...
I do not use websites anymore. It's just a pain and at the end-of-life for me.
either you receive a bombardement of ads, or popups or cookie-nightmare... the free internet is dying, just like free-tv.
Glad, I only need SO in my job and at home I almost entirely stopped all internet activities, except gaming. Steam, Battlenet... Accessing online resources through apps, yes. But in the browser? Not anymore. That's almost gone.
I never had, and never will use those "social" napworks like twitter, facebook, insta and-how-they-are-all-named. I am blessed with a natural immunity against those. Lucky me.
If you like the "old style" internet, then just click "Accept All" and you will get the same version you used to have... when they did everything you are accepting anyway, they just didn't tell you about it.
I tend to give sites one click chance. Preferably "decline all" but I don't mind "accept" if I am interested in the content, if I get a second pop-up then I leave the site.
I generally try to make sites work without JS enabled. But some modules require it, for example, a calendar to filter data table. So you cannot view single-page applications, which are based on client-side JS enabled. I want to ask you, as I'm wondering, what kind of situations make you enable your JS? Trusting the website? Other? If you can answer I'd be glad. Thanks.
To read an article - that was the original question - I usually don't need scripting enabled.
I try to interact (i.e. activate scripting) only with websites I trust, then I allow scripting selectively (e.g. yes for the hotel website, no to google analytics).
If in doubt I leave the site.
