Really, it's not.  Extreme, perhaps, but not ridiculous.

You don't.  You browse everything in Konqueror, and if something doesn't 
work, right click on the page and tell it to "Open with Firefox".  I do this 
all the time.  otoh, I would never dream of turning off javascript.  One 
might as well run a copy of Navigator 3 or IE 4.  I'd be happy if I really 
could view the web without Flash, but viewing the web without javascript is 
ignoring most of the strength of the web.
