JavaScript Detection

These days, it's basically impossible to navigate the web without a JavaScript-enabled browser, so checking whether or not a user has JavaScript enabled is not all that important. Chances are, the only way it be disabled is if the company's IT staff has decided to disable JavaScript for some reason. However, if you still want to be sure your users are JavaScript enabled, this script will get it done.

The only sure fire way to separate users who don't have JavaScript from those who do is to use a simple redirect script that will only work for those with JavaScript enabled. If a person's browser does not have JavaScript enabled, the script will not run, and they will remain on the same page
