Over 98% of the images on the web are either pr0n or wankage.  
If you don't need to see that, you can save a lot of time.

But it's usually Javascript that crashes Netscape.  (CSS appears to
be implemented using Javascript, because if you turn off Javascript,
then CSS stops working (and crashing).) That's not to say that Java 
doesn't also crash Netscape; it's just that pages with Java in them 
are not very common.

There's little point in bookmarking a site that depends on client-side
Javascript or Java, because it won't be up for very long.

But this is *really* off topic, now.
