I use them often, and i omit them just as often. Whenever you form starts out "blank", as in an email form, it will not need the reset(). But when the form is part of an app and comes up with pre-filled and pre-selected data, a reset() button is a MUST! If you ever use a wheelmouse to scroll a page and happen to scroll over a select box, you'll know how easy it is to mess up the defaults on such a form. Just because "most users" dont know about that scenario doesn't mean you should make things harder for the few that do. The idiots are no worse off WITH the button, but the power users will thank you for leaving it there. comfirm('Great Tip!'); 2p.
