My now-ancient .sig probably still applies:

I surf faster than you do, monkey boy.  (My take on Netscape vs. Lynx)

The problem is that very few JavaScript applications support a usable
keyboard interface.  As long as they support a minimal HTML interface
that works with Lynx, I'm good -- and I'm probably faster than you are.

Of course, if your application really is a GUI app (such as Google
Maps), by all means restrict your UI to JavaScript-enabled browsers.
