I'm working on displaying a hidden div when clicked on for a website. This would be a contact for to request more information about a product, so, its a very important form.
So, i came across the following (demo) http://papermashup.com/demos/jquery-show-hide-plugin/
Which works great, and uses jquery. With a couple of modifications would be a perfect fit for the application I'm working at.
There's only one problem: On Safari (argh!), the animation looks choppy.
So I have 2 questions:
1 - For the more experienced webmasters, is it a good practice to use java script to display such and important part of this website? Could I run into problems? I know that java script could be disabled, but is that even realistic? Should I perhaps find a different solution?
2 - Is there a way to improve the animation so it works better on Safari, or should I just go a different route?
