Actually not. I allow Javascript but I block web fonts because I think they're a stupid idea.

Your argument about desktop apps isn't very good because people can (and do) prevent desktop apps from doing certain things and accessing various stuff, like web cams, the microphone, system directories, the internet, etc. If my text editor breaks because it can't access my webcam, I'd say it's a serious problem.

Just curious, how do you actually block desktop apps from doing such things, aside from unplugging the device in question that is?
