The whole site currently relies heavily on client-side JavaScript 
functionality.
Some of the ideas under consideration for 'category' displays could be done 
without using JavaScript in the future, potentially delivering a 
JavaScript-free alternative for accessing the site for downloads.

Hi Nicolas,

I've added a redirect metatag to the search page, so it should now redirect 
automatically after 6 seconds to the Javascript-free 'Thumbnails' page 
whenever you go into the 'Search' page without Javascript turned on. The 
'Thumbnails' page also uses 'a' tags rather than buttons for downloads.

Regards,
Chris B.
