Not really. Having JavaScript enabled while surfing the 'Net
is an open invitation to cross-site scripting and worse.
Just look at all the JavaScript security exploits listed
on SANS & CERT & elsewhere. I *never* enable JavaScript
by default, only for the minimum duration necessary when
dealing with the very few sites that require it that I *must*
visit [for financial or legal reasons]. I find that almost
all sites I really care about are quite navigable without it.
