  • So bad, doesn’t work with Javascript disabled.

    It’s a javascript plugin – of course it doesn’t work if you have javascript disabled. It doesn’t work if you don’t turn your computer on either.

  • Regnareb

    It means nothing. When you are developing something, it should always be usable without Js. Here it would be very easy to have this site usable even when the javascript disabled.

    I think, the most people haven’t disabled javascript. I think it’s really helpful.

  • Lckamal

    what do you mean? It is like you want to surf web without internet connections.

  • I_am_an_idiot

    I agree. It’s really bad, it doesn’t work with the computer turned off.
