Javascript's a fine tool, and almost everyone has it enabled.  The few 
that don't (and I'm sometimes one of them) just have to live without 
some functionality.  The number of users without Javascript these days 
means it's not worth getting rid of functionality to please those few.

My websites frequently use calculators.  I used to put up a form that 
the user submitted, going to another results page.  No more, now I use 
ajax, where the results are displayed on the fly as you change the 
inputs.  And that relies heavily on javascript.  The user experience has 
changed a lot now that I've done that - no way am I going back to 
nonjavascript.
