Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

You did solicit feedback by posting here, but hey, I'll go with #3 instead.
3. Ignore broken sites, just like the search engines do
Here's the website displayed by two different browsers on a Slackware64 14.1 system.
1. Mozilla Firefox 45.8.0 ESR (default configuration).
I suggest you just use the standard Firefox configuration. Or any other browser on any other system, for the matter. I did ask for feedback on the site's content indeed. If you want to discuss the pros and cons of mobile-friendly web design, I don't think this is the appropriate place to do this. Thank you.
The new one just has slowly rotating curved lines in the middle of the browser window.

Edit: Here are two positive examples of using CSS without requiring JS:
Well neither of you are exactly correct. The site displays an overlay hiding content, yes, that won't go away if js is disabled. But, if you are using NoScript, then press and hold the left mouse button on the center graphic and press delete, and then the same on the general overlay. Then you can use the site just fine without js. js is not required for this site. The overlay may be from css or standard html, I don't know this since I don't make websites.
"Customized" maybe my seamonkey (not heavily), but you gotta know how to use your browser when you see sites like this...
I generally browse on mobile devices without js btw. It speeds up sites immensely. I don't know how to kill overlays in this case (chrome on mobile). I would just get rid of that "loading" thing, and it is a fine site after that.

Even a simple page just saying "hey, turn on JS or this site will not work" is better that rotating lines thing.

- Hi guys. Here's 1.558 extra packages for Slackware. And dozens of pages of documentation. Have fun
Another thing: too often I have gone looking for your guides (setting up Slackware on online.net, for example) and found them missing, or at a new address.
When I can find them, the guides are useful. The website looks good; the content is worthwhile. Don't get too upset when somebody prods you to make changes that can only be beneficial. I had a customer about 12 years ago who had severely limited mobility and helping her with a computer opened my eyes to the brain-dead and stupid interfaces supposedly intelligent programmers still design in the 21st century. Don't be like those people. Accessibility matters.

Thanks for this information. I use NoScript and it worked just as you described. I wasn't aware NoScript could delete individual page components like this.
