@strypey does firefox with noscript count?
@carcinopithecus no ;) What I'm getting at is that the bloated beasts we still call "web browsers" stopped being that some time ago. They've become something more like a JS thin-client for mainframes operated by #DataFarming corporations. A browser than only parsed the web (HTML/CSS) would be much less bloated, require fewer updates (I'm guessing), and wouldn't need #NoScript et al.

Throw in SVG and you can do gorgeous (semi-)interactive data visualization, too – or even build weird custom GUIs…
And heck, even partial page updates – the one thing actually giving JS a right to exist – could just be built into HTTP/HTML.
