How to enable JavaScript in my browser

Nowadays, almost all web-developers use JavaScript in their web-pages. JavaScript is a client-side scripting language that runs on a client machine (such as a web-browser). It helps web-developers to create modern web-pages that allow users to interact directly with the web-pages, without reloading them. If JavaScript is disabled in the web-browser, the web pages may not function properly, or their functionality may be reduced or unavailable.

Let's see how we can enable JavaScript in the Top Five most commonly used web-browsers by following the given instructions:
