    JavaScript. Yea or Nae?

    To help with a couple of projects I'm currently working on, I need an idea of what proportion of EduGeek users use what browser, and if you surf with JavaScript enabled or disabled.

    If your browser isn't listed can you let me know what you're using. I was going to have 'IE < 6', 'Mozilla' and 'Other' but ran out of spaces, damn poll limits >_<

    Cheers

    @NetworkGeezer: JScript is the MS 'version' of JavaScript, usually used for scripting WSH.

    JavaScript is a web script language (usually implemented on the client although occasionally on the server).

    JScript is Microsoft's version of ECMAScript, while JavaScript is Netscape/Sun's version of ECMAScript.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ECMAScript
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JScript
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JavaScript

    So yes, JavaScript is like JScript, but they're not entirely interchangeable

    I'm assuming you've looked in the Firefox javascript submenu? I turn all those off. Providing you're not using javascript in an "annoying" way, you should be fine.

    @pete: You and I seem to be in the minority, although I prefer to use NoScript rather than disabling completely.

    TBH I'd rather avoid JavaScript and use CSS :hover and CSS2 selectors, but IE6 doesn't implement them properly/at all and if our userbase is primarily IE6 I may have little choice in the matter.
