All of this and more. There are serious security issues with javascript on the PC side. Most exploits and drive by malware installations use javascript and having a script blocking extensions can spare you a lot of grief. It also consumes a lot of bandwidth, CPU cycles and memory and if you use a script blocker like Noscript for Firefox, you will find you have a lot more free memory and CPU cycles that can be put to a much better use like Winuae.
