I understand what is being done here, and I like the overall approach. I am just curious about the specifics listed in the article. Namely 1) Is there a browser out there that understands media queries that doesn’t support addEventListener? And 2) Is there a mobile browser that actually lets you disable JavaScript (and thus wouldn’t cut the mustard but could understand media query rules)? I mean, I guess with the latter you could argue a desktop browser that is not maximized and has JS turned off might encounter that, and you might be able to enter a flag into about:config on Firefox Mobile, but those seem like odd edge cases.

I know, not really the point of the article. They make good illustrations of what you can do. I just wondered if those examples were actually possible things to look for.
