I’m almost to the point where I’m ready to drop all support for those users who chose to browse with it turned off and just use <noscript> to redirect them to a page with instructions on how to turn it on. I’ll have to give it some more thought before I’m ready to commit to a change like that.
Ok, I can see where you’re coming from but this is definitely a bad idea.
I used to browse using Firefox with the NoScript extension, I chose to do this for security reasons. Many many many Firefox users browse the web with this extension – just something to think about …
And what about people browsing the web using other types of sensory perceptions (i.e. other than sight)? …
Okay, so I’ve listed why it wouldn’t work but I haven’t yet covered why you shouldn’t do it.
In a way it’s the same as dropping support for a browser, it simply shouldn’t be done. I’m not talking about CSS and cross-browser differences here, I’m talking about basic access to content. If you’re using IE5 to access the BBC news site, the last thing you want is a big popup coming up ordering you to upgrade your browser.
I hope that’s answered your questions.
