Ross Penman says it best in this article “explicitly choosing to disable JavaScript is far from the only reason a user’s browser might not run it.”

and goes on to explain that “out of every 500 visitors to GOV.UK, five did not receive JavaScript, but only one had JavaScript explicitly disabled.” 

Ross goes on to explain how frameworks like Angular and Ember can better render single page web apps from a progressive enhancement approach. Excellent article.

The concept of the web as an application platform has never been more popular, but the tools used to create these so-called “web apps” are still fraught with pitfalls that are often ignored or misunderstood.
