Coop... I've been changing banks like I change clothes lately, but here's the harsh reality: there is an ATM 100 feet from where my wife works. The next available ATM is 53 miles away on winding roads (about 1.5 hour drive). We bank with whoever maintains that ATM or otherwise gives us free transactions there.
As it turns out, my current bank isn't bad. You can navigate just fine w/o JS. Your first sign-in attempt gets rejected if you have JS turned off, but you can log in with a 3-step process if JS is off. So it's all good.
My general impression is that things are getting worse - so many sites don't work at all with JS turned off because they are utterly built within an AJAX paradigm and nobody thinks to test with JS off, or they don't do so until after the spec has been written and the site mostly built and the developer says "Sure, we can make that work without JS for $12,500" and the company says "Nah."
I find the web almost unusable these days if you're running No Script.
