Well, yeah. But if it's blocked, it doesn't get run, and if it
doesn't run, it doesn't consume 100% of your cpu. I find it's usually
advertisements anyway. If you really need to watch a youtube, you
click the noscript icon and unblock it, then when you're done, you
execute killall npviewer.bin. That's the best solution I've found
yet, and it bites, just like flash bites, and gnash bites, all in
their own extra special way.
