JavaScript Off? Who cares?

Most people have JavaScript on right? Some don’t, but how much effort do you put into handling that and gracefully degrade?

It kicked in with me recently as I worked with an application that had Webkit embedded but turned off JavaScript support.

Working with this cripping made things clear that a lot of people really do require JS these days.

As much as we give lip service to accessibility and degradability how many people are really doing it. It is too hard to make people do it in their projects as developers need to give business value to their users.

I think that this will be a problem until it is as easy to add accessibility into our applications as it is NOT too (e.g. higher level frameworks need to handle it for us).
