This site makes heavy use of JavaScript

@twitter: If you’re using Old Twitter, we want to let you know that you’ll be upgraded to New Twitter this week.

It used to be a luxury to run a Twitter client, now it'll be a necessity if you want decent performance and/or want to avoid Gawker-esque sites that abuse JavaScript to such an extreme that they depend on entire libraries to render basic pages. She bangs, she bangs.

A coincidence that Twitter is buying these clients up?
