We are already discussing what is subject to individual predilections. And the reason is simply that the web “gives you the freedom to do it”, not a necessity. My thoughts may not be clear as I am lacking the vocabulary to express them, but the very first point of my own reasoning, when reflecting on the OP's question, is: What is the ideal, that I would be after?

The answer has evolved during those years of using the Web. In short, today, I prefer to be confronted with out-of-the-box usable content. Probably, because I have followed many of the serpentine roads that technology has chosen to pave before me. See my exploding CSS:

I would say all "good" things in moderation but who decides and what about the "bad?"

I like being able to search through texts though if the net trends like the software, time for a upgrade? Should always be able to get here:

As a certified "software Luddite", this is all good. I can actually navigate this site, whereas I find most of the modern sites baffling.
