It doesn't help that site if it cannot viewed with *any* software.
Regardless of the SW license.

The great majority of sites has *NO* need to look as the visions in
some LSD trip, to strain your eyes with blue text on black background
or to have puppets flashing and waving at you at any corner.

Using the latest "technology" is very often just an excuse to pump up
the web designer bill. Or to feel like an overpaid web designer. It
just makes the site LESS useable, even if everybody ran MS Explorer.

If the content or service doesn't really *NEED* to behave like Star
Wars, boycott the site. Let their owners know. And tell Aunt Tillie to
do the same. Without ever mentioning proprietary formats, patents
freedom and so on. This alone would substantially cut the number of
cases where not having a proprietary browser plugin is an issue.
