Why I've started using NoScript

Just about every web site I visit, I've discovered, has at least a couple of third-party dependencies, whose provenance I don't trust, and which I'd rather not spend (even a minuscule proportion of) my energy bill on.
A much bigger win the the same vein is your mobile data bill! I've been using Brave on Android with JS off by default and adblocking and my month-to-month data usage has fallen precipitously. (One can also use Firefox mobile with various add-ons to achieve the same effect, obviously)
