Hello? I don't think that should make any difference. I should be able
to visit absolutely any website on the Internet without any danger to my
computer or the data stored on it. Any browser which allows otherwise
has a bug. Javascript is not inherently a virus vector. Flawed
implementations might be; the language itself is not. Similarly for
anything else. In reality, with a properly-configured, good quality
operating system (probably a UNIX-type system), one ought to be able to
run full native code without any danger to one's computer or data
(think: under the NOBODY account on Linux).

Just my 1/50th of a dollar.

Chris
