Javascript really does seem to be less prevalent on the web than a year ago -or perhaps more web coders are providing <Noscript> alternatives on their pages. It has now reached the stage where I can afford to ignore sites that do not work with NetSurf. I have just researched and booked flights, car park and hotel for a holiday using nothing but NetSurf.

The only area where the lack of JS was a problem was with maps. More and more sights are going for dynamic maps rather than static images. This gets around update and copyright problems, so I suppose will probably become more common.
