Even though I'm being made fun of, Gwern is actually right.  When coding
I sometimes find it much quicker to use some text browser or in-editor
browser to look something up.  Developers shouldn't be denied doing
that, because development doesn't need fancy eye candy.  As said,
JavaScript /support/ is fine, but JavaScript /requirement/ isn't.  But
that's just my humble opinion.
