I'm not concerned either, since I'm prepared. Same for someone trying to break into the house.

It can't be worse than that IE6 exploit
So, explain me how that is technically impossible, and how that makes you feel safer?

A banner campaign that could nuke your PC without scripting. Pretty near impossible to disable.
No banner campaigns being loaded here, regardless of browser. Domains serving ads are blocked on the system level, so it works with all browsers, and even on my Kubuntu machine. A small C# app synchronizes them; GETting the latest file on a webserver and adding the last local modification date to that header. If the server replies "not modified[^]", the file isn't even downloaded, making the impact on the system very low. Plus I don't spend bandwidth (which is cheap nowadays, granted) or computing power on downloading and displaying ads (and/or malware).

It matters not how strait the browser, how charged with malware the ads,
I'm the master of my machine, I am the captain of my CPU.
