Not a good way to make friends. This is like saying, "go away, we don't want you" or, "we only want 93% uptime for our website." I think the business case for this is rare indeed.
I like this approach the best. This is known as the "progressive enhancement" method, and it's the best way to build bullet-proof websites in the modern age.
Still not very friendly. This is marginally better than blocking access to the whole site.
- Place a block of alternative content in a <noscript> section containing equivalent functionality.
Workable, but inefficient. <noscript> functionality is really a suboptimal solution, since it requires you to basically code your functionality into the page twice.
- Just let certain features break, it's not really that big a deal.
Possibly confusing. Not only do visitors not get the functionality they were looking for, now they're confused as well, without any explanation of why it won't work.
