We will discuss how to find whether our Browser supports JavaScript or not. For this, we need to use the <noscript> tag, which defines an alternate text to be displayed to users who have disabled <script> tag in their Browsers. Since JavaScript is written inside <script> tag in HTML document, the JavaScript would not be supported by that browser that has disabled <script> tag.

The <noscript> tag can be used inside both <head> and <body> tags. If <noscript> tag is present inside the <head> then, <link>, <meta> and <style> tag could only be inserted inside <noscript> tag.


<noscript> content </noscript>



<!DOCTYPE html>
    <h1>Verify if browser supports JavaScript</h1>
      "GeeksforGeeks" will be displayed by
       browser if it supports JavaScript
        Sorry, JavaScript is not supported by your browser!

Output: If JavaScript is supported.
