"Breaking the internet" is a bit far-fetched. More like you should take considerations for the small percentage of people who don't have javascript/disable javascript/use NoScript (Yahoo places disabled rates at 1-2% [1]). However using Javascript form-submission to submit forms will work for the vast majority of users, if you're building an MVP a simple message stating "Please enable Javascript" will probably be enough. Accepting both javascript submission and browser submission should however be a longer-term goal.
