I'll start with my toot, slightly shorn of context:
Every so often I wind up viewing a version of the web that isn't filtered by uBlock Origin and my 'allow basically no JS' settings (in my default browser) and oh ow ow ow.
(But 'allow no JS' is basically the crazy person setting and it's only tolerable because I keep a second browser just for JS-required sites. Which throws away all my cookies & stuff every time it shuts down, because my trust is very low once JS is in the picture)
Having two browsers is reasonably easy (provided that you're willing to use both Chrome and Firefox; these days I instead have two instances of Firefox). Arranging to be able to move URLs and links easily back and forth is probably not for most people in most desktop environments. I'm the kind of person who writes scripts and runs a custom window manager environment, so I can blithely describe this as 'not too much work (for me)'.
(You can always select a link in one browser and do 'Copy link location', then start the other browser and paste it into the URL bar. But this is not a fast and fluid approach.)
