IMHO, it shows indolence on the part of the coder.
A simple .js can route those to that content,
and redirect those to more text-mode friendly content.

But some content IS best viewed that way. There are some neat
Unix shite (like Cult3d), but for visually stunning, WildTangent's
content rocks. And it's more than a DirectX wrapper.
I've seen whole games (like the JurassicParkIII site) that does
make the IE argument compelling.  

now if they could just do something like that for a *Nix browser
(maybe using java, xml, and SDL)
