You're absolutely right, even though I suspect you were half-joking. We all know by now that programs tend to expand to use the available resources and there's little reason to think this will be any different. If we're loading pages "34% faster" then we can soon expect those pages to be filled with 34% more ads!

Okay, I know this is off topic and I apologize, but can we agree that its time to stop calling them "Cybercriminals"? It's not 1997 anymore and internet-enabled devices are deeply integrated into most aspects of all our lives - they're just criminals.

I'm serious by the way, this isn't an attempt to be funny. Appending the cyber- prefix automatically sets them apart and I think that's a bad thing. They're thieves, and we already have plenty of words for those.
