It's preferred for the very reason you state: it doesn't require

I, personally, also find it more usable. If I see a menu like this, I
don't know what's under it, so I might click on it just to see the
options. Often, if I accidently click on an item just to close it, it
will automatically trigger the javscript and take me to a different page
when that wasn't necessarily my intention. Very annoying.
