Yes, I use uBlock Origin. However, NoScript used to allow per-domain blocking, temporary whitelisting and whitelisting -- so things like not allowing YouTube videos to play but still allowing the rest of the page to render was possible, then video plkaying could be turned on and off with one selection.
Is there an option on uBlock to, for example, allow all text, images and similar content from a site but not allow scripts to run? Then allow them for the current browser session only? NoScript used to allow that but now the menus are a confusing mess and, possibly, the new Firefox plugin API is to blame also, who knows?

Try uMatrix. That should allow a finegrained control more resembling what you want.

I voted for Ghostery, but I also use Privacy Badger as well as a coin mining prevention add-on.

NoScript in Firefox.

I just cannot browse the modern web without NoScript.

this is how i have been using noscript for a long time.
seems i'm still using legacy mozilla api.
sad to hear that such finegrained control won't be possible anymore.
