I run quite a lot of blocking on my web experience, with pihole and uBlock and I wonder how much that slows things down as the JS failing to load must take a moment or two two timeout + handle errors etc.
@M0YNG I run uBlock and NoScript here, and on older hardware. Believe me, the time it takes for JS to time out is less than it takes to run it in many cases. Blocking it definitely makes pages load faster more often than not.
But the fundamental problem is that HTTP was originally designed to handle static documents. Then people started layering hack-upon-hack-upon-hack until we got the Web of today, where everything has to be a "web app."
