    Using SELECT as a navigation for mobile devices?

    I've noticed a trend in responsive Wordpress themes. Rather than modify the existing navigation for mobile devices, they hide the desktop one and plop in a SELECT menu so as to utilize the phone's natural rendering of the select menu (ie, the scrollwheel in iOS).

    I'm thinking about utilizing this going forward with any future responsive designs, but I'm concerned because it's dependent on Javascript to give the select menu the ability to navigate to another page. Everything I'm seeing says not to depend on Javascript for responsive designs.

    What are people's thoughts on this?

    Javascript can be disabled, so if it's key functionality, you want a non-JS alternative.
