To government agents, it doesn't matter that Kaspersky isn't aiding the Russian government. His company needs to be in the pocket of the US government or they will destroy it.

When you close a browser tab on Slashdot there is even a spinner widget of some sort at the screen bottom now, so the scripting even responds to the user manually closing a tab. That's a little eerie because I specifically close a tab to not iteract with a page anymore. It's not as bad as pages that throw pleading popups when you try to close, of course.
