As per our latest research being accessible, responsive, and scalable isn't the only parameters to discover performance of a website and truly isn't enough. Third-party scripts does matter whenever you implement it inside your website.

As per conversation with different web specialists working on quite a high profile websites. They hired for the web development, but particularly to keep the performance in mind. They were guide to follow PWA route and were somehow severely restrict by third-party scripts. For more details on PWA checklist please go to the link.

Few JavaScripts has been used by marketing team just to jump as quickly as possible but trust me giving such access to marketing team where they could modify files directly isn't a good idea. Third party scripts could be used for anything starting from design to buttons and modals. One should be very careful with third party scripts because these could be the number one cause for the performance and also for poor user experience. 

Few important points : Client Deliverable
 # Give them as little as possible to integrate with
 # Async snippet that does the injection of extra markup, handles the initialization/customization in the initial request, and injects the correct styles.
 # Caching is the most effective work around, it gives high performance and lower cost, except the updates, since this is hard to roll out.

Third party JavaScript size and cache policy are crucial too, it relates to the performance for the users and bills to you. Third party scripts could be used for analytics, live chat, collaboration board, ads, and many more. Your preference and other information could also be tracked with these third party scripts.
