re: Some common anti non-javascript mechanism websites use VIEW POST


I hope you tried the following too:

  • driving your car without a steering wheel
  • do not use your credit card, always go to the bank, in person
  • using your phone without a keyboard
  • do not unplug your laptop, ever (from electricity)

All these actions are similar with your default usage (of disabled JS): do not use the mechanism that are meant to improve your UX, and saving you time.

As a side note, how do you track users like you? I mean you are a developer too, so in your projects, how do you find out how many % users have disabled JS? so you know if you need to improve their experience or is not needed to spend time on this (there were 0 visitors).


I mentioned at the end that I still have separate profile with javascript enabled. It just my default profile has it disabled by default, and enabled only for websites I choose to. And talking about saving time, disabling js proved to save my time a lot. All websites I mentioned above are content based websites. I don't need fancy UI, I just need to read the text.
