True device independence requires a site be navigable without javascript.
I certainly am not saying it's easy going for ancient browsers now.   I am
instead predicting that the new best practice standards for web design will
bring forth a more ancient browser-friendly WWW, moving forward.  At least
it won't get any worse.  I noticed many commercial web sites have adopted
the new standards including javascript - free navigation.  I can say as a
web development professional that's all anyone talks about.  Google favors
sites who adopt the new standards in their rankings.

It will be interesting to see were we stand in 5 years.  I predict it will
be easier to use an ancient browser then, than today.
