ADD EXCITEMENT AND FUNCTIONALITY TO YOUR WEB SITE
You can add excitement and functionality to your web site by utilizing some Java Scripts, some of which are user friendly. So you must be careful about what you're using on your webpage.

BE CAREFUL
Take care when adding Java Scripts to your web site. Some can crash browsers and/or computers. Crash a visitor's system and they will never come back (unless they do a major upgrade). So test your scripts with a variety of different browsers and systems. In a perfect world a non-compatible script will be invisible. The user doesn't even know it's there. An error message is okay, as long as it doesn't cause the user's system to hang and still gives them the ability to navigate your site.

BE SELECTIVE
Be selective about what scripts you use. Don't put scripts into your site just because they're cool. Only use scripts that enhance your site, not clutter it with meaningless stuff. Ask yourself, "How can this make my site better?" If you can come up with a couple good answers, or one really good one, then it might be worth a try.

EXPERIMENTING CAN PRODUCE INTERACTIVITY
Interactivity is important to your site, and you can use your experimenting with Java Scripts as an opportunity to create interactivity by allowing your visitors to report to you how the scripts work, if they had any problems, and if they think that it makes your site better.
