How many users have JavaScript disabled? by Nicholas Zakas (at YDN Blog): The second takeaway is that JavaScript-disabled users exist. While 2% of U.S. visitors may not seem like a lot, keep in mind that over 300 million users visit the Yahoo! homepage each month. That means 6 million users visit each month without the […]
