I think we do, as well as Opera, Mozilla and alternative OSs users as well. Of course some just try to hit the center of the bell curve because it is simpler, but why loose the sales/traffic. Macguru msg:1489629 8:50 pm on Nov 12, 2001 (gmt 0)
Not to mention all corporate users with IE getting the scripting environnement turned off on their PC because of security reasons.
The essence of the web is to be available to all platforms and all browsers. Not to turn users away like M$N did.
JS is the safest and most widely supported scipting language for the web.

Definitely for client side.
Alot can be done server side with PHP, Perl and (ugh)ASP and JSP.
A mixture of the two is the best approach for cross browser compatibilities.

The only times Client-Side VBScript can really be considered are if: You sniff the Browser and do VBScript if it is IE You are in a corporate IntraNet where you can control the Browser and are sure that it is IE (and hopefully a specific version) You are doing a B2B site where you are essential enough that you can dictate that IE must be used
