1. A modern browser with JS intentionally turned off
2. An old browser
3. A specialized browser (WebTV, cell phone, etc.)
In case 1, the user has decided for themselves that they don’t want to see JS-based content (for whatever personal reason), and in cases 2 and 3, the user wouldn’t be seeing your site correctly anyway, JS or not – those browsers don’t support the latest standards.
Is it worth the time to craft JS-free fallbacks for our sites just for this specific group of people? Again, going by the stats, there are more people with screen resolutions of 800 x 600 than there are people with JS disabled, yet everyone designs their site for 1024 x 768 nowadays – even major corporations (Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, etc.).July 8, 2008 at 6:10 pm #48415
Personally I don’t think you should require JS to perform main functions on a web application, but I do understand the nicety and some improvement on usability issues it can do.
Here’s what mostly can’t use or don’t support* JS:

- Mobile devices[/*:m]
- Screen readers for people with disabilities[/*:m]
- Users with NoScript-plugin installed[/*:m][/list:u]
Else, I’d say go for it. Make it fancy, and impress (future) clients if you can ;)
Also, if you don’t have Lynx or don’t want it, I recommend checking out the Yellowpipe Lynx Viewer-plugin for FirefoxJuly 10, 2008 at 9:25 am #48441
I’ve used sites where the submit-button looks like this:Code:
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="bla.css" />
