I'm using Win7Pro64, Jaws 2021, & IE11+ with everything as up-to-date as their makers provide. I run with JS (and all scripting, 99.9% of the "enhancements" disabled, etc) so the sites I visit will hopefully load faster, cleaner, & safer. If I block JS then those ad slinger JS exploits can't even get in the front door. If those "enhancements" are disabled then the vulnerabilities they create are also stopped cold at the door. If the site refuses to load then I do a DDG search for a cached version of the site, read the plain text copy, & consume the content in safety. If no plain text cache is available then I go elsewhere.
My bank doesn't require JS, ElReg doesn't require JS, my homepage doesn't require JS, and none of the news sites I (RSS) subscribe to need it, so any site that *requires* me to turn JS on in order to deliver content is given TheFinger as I close the tab.
"Before you use this car wash we require you to lower the top on your convertible, roll down all the windows on your hardtop, & stick your head out to smile into the oncoming stream of hot wax so our spinning brushes can scrub your teeth." Since I don't consider using a car wash to power wash the *inside* of my car to be a very good idea, and there's no way in hell I'd agree to let them brush my teeth, I'll go find another car wash that doesn't require such stupidity.
Change "car wash" to "web site", "windows" to "firewall", & "brush your teeth" to "bend over & take it up the arse". =-/
