Subject Should download pages *require* Javascript?
Date Mon, 19 Aug 2013 11:52:27 GMT
The download page at present requires Javascript.
Without Javascript, there is no obvious way to download AOO 4.0 at all.

Note that the page http://www.openoffice.org/download/other.html also
requires Javascript!

It's nice to be able to use Javascript to guess which download the
user wants, but I don't think that this convenience should be at the
expense of preventing users from finding the download link if they
don't have Javascript (or they have a broken version of Javascript).

How about having drop-down lists for the OS and Language?

Javascript could be used to preset the values, but at least the user
would remain in control, e.g. if the Javascript failed to recognise
their system or they wanted to download a different language from the
one supported by their browser.

Whatever method is chosen, I think it should be possible to download
AOO without the use of Javascript.
