What's the web application you're using as an example - all I've seen
is a toy window manager, which is nothing but a framework around which
applications can be built - it's not a web application, it provides no
content or service or functionality  in itself.

Hmm, Didn't we just go over this? - using javascript is an
implementation detail - Degradatiion is about access to content and
services, it's not about javascript or HTML or SVG or CSS or any other
