I'd guess it was near 90-93% right now. I doubt it will go much higher than that anytime soon. That leaves 10% of your audience left out.
Thanks Brett, I was figuring 8% --but that number was just a gut call, I just didn't want it to be 20 or 30 percent and end up being blindsided.
I'm one of those people myself. Too many sites take forever to render useful content while behind the curtain stuff is happening. If I remember Brett's results accurately, there was a big difference between the impact of simple js functions and the impact of complex DHTML stuff.
Still trying to learn which versions this applies to and if it has been fixed. The article I read was over a year old.
>possibilities I've vetoed because of compatibility problems or long rendering times.
OK, so I pose the question:
Will you use a fast-loading, simple js for mission critical items such as site navigation on a HUGE site.
Are you talking about the situation where a non-js browser cannot navigate the site at all? No, I probably would not, but it's hypothetical for me since I don't have any huge sites and my wallet is not on the line.
On second thought maybe, if I was real confident that the gains I got would make up for the lost traffic, either in lower admin costs or higher income.
Nice wishy-washy decision, eh?
