I try to avoid using javascript wherever possible.

Save yourself the hassle of debugging javascript by not using it in the
first place! Save your client development costs and save yourself from
ripping your hair out! If the functionality of your site depends on a lot
of programming and you're using javascript, you should probably use
something server-side.
