Okay, granted. That's not allowed in my Dancer app, since there are
plenty of other things that require JS, but I concede the point.
Is that really a big slice of your user base, though?
You might be chasing an 0.0001% slice. If only 1% of your app's users
have disabled JS in their browser, and those savvy 1% have error rates
of only 1%, and of that fraction only 1% are so UI sensitive that they
will go use some other web app rather than deal with errors tossed into
a common <div> rather than be bound to the UI controls that caused them,
then you're spending too much time keeping too few users.
In my experience[*], that last term goes nearly to 0%, since disabling
JS breaks so much UI on the web that they're already self-selecting into
a group that doesn't care about UI details.
[*] I use Firefox with NoScript.
