Users  will  loathe  it; Not all users have JS  enabled/supported;  Search
engines  will  not follow and obey the redirection and the list  goes  on.

JavaScript  might be fine for a one-off re-direction of some page (yes,  I
have  a few for historical reasons), but all in all, JS is no  alternative
to server-side (thus rather transparent) redirection.

Hope it helps,
