I also suggest Firefox Reader View (or Just Read for Chrome). These will render only the main article on a page, stripping away all the extra junk. Many commercial sites have clickbait articles, autoplay videos, and other nonsense alongside the main article on a page. Ad Blockers and security add-ons will leave all this distracting noise alone. Reader View renders precisely what you want to see (usually).

But like NoScript, Reader View is a blunt instrument and will throw out useful site features. I only enable it in the rare case where there's a worthwhile article on a crappy site.
