Why would someone browse the web with JavaScript disabled?

My answer to Why would someone browse the web with JavaScript disabled? on Quora

Security conscious users (who understand the implications of XSS and CSRF attacks) sometimes disable JavaScript completely, or use a tool like the NoScript extension to disable it for all sites and only re-enable it on a small whitelist of sites that they trust.

Apparently some corporate proxies strip JavaScript at the border.
