I usually avoid using JavaScript when programming. One main reason is for accessibility, and for those who shut it off for security reasons XSS etc.

While programming my first online game I styed true to my philosophy and did it all without and JavaScript. The game works, but it doesn't seem to have the pizzazz. I also have to do without ajax. So I starting to soften up on JavaScript.

Am I being silly. Should I break down and start adding JavaScript and Ajax to the game or are there really good reasons no to use JavaScript?

Interactivity of plain web pages just isn't good enough.

Of course Javascript sucks both for security and compatibility reasons but hey - it beats Flash :)
