fancy stuff like social media won't work, but as long as you're just trying to read text, most sites are legible once you scroll past all the header junk.

I browse with RequestPolicy set to block by default so this is something I experience frequently.

CDNs that inject JS and those single-page text-serving JS "apps" are annoying and often break all this, but it works well enough most places.

Sure, but I wouldn't call having to scroll past all the junk degrading gracefully.
