Oh, it doesn't make me grind my teeth.  I just ignore it.  I have no
interest in running software completely untrusted third parties would
like me to run.

For you, I daresay it does.  It might for me too, if I could stand it.
(There are a very few websites I actually find to be worth subjecting
myself to - and are the only ones that come to
mind offhand.)

It is, of course, not entirely irrelevant that on the few occasions
when I do try to something with the Web, I do it from a classic
machine, usually a SPARCstation-20.
