Steps to reproduce:
1. Disable JavaScript
2. Go to http://www.alwayslowest.com/ or http://www.eunitek.com/

Actual results:
===
This site is designed and optimized for Internet Explorer and Netscape 4.0 and above. If you are viewing this page, you have javascript disabled in your browser preferences, or you're not using a current browser. You can download a current browser by following these links:
 
Netscape Navigator/Communicator: http://netscape.com/computing/download/
 
Internet Explorer: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/
 
Once you have installed any javascript enabled browser, or turned on your scripting in your browser's settings, come back to www.eunitek.com and take a look around; we've got a lot to offer you.
===
->> might cause someone to prefer Netscape or IE over everything else.

Expected results:
Probably a message saying that the actual purchases require JavaScript support and a browser like [a list of browsers].


With JavaScript enabled, the browser is redirected to <http://www.alwayslowest.com/al/index.cfm>, some parts of which work without JavaScript.

It still is so.

Not sure I had noticed the “any javascript enabled browser” bit back then, though.

I'm not really sure this is TE-worthy, especially with the "any javascript enabled browser" part in there. INVALID, I guess.
