I'm not really against the idea, but it should be more transparent and make it optional. There's many websites where I wouldn't mind my CPU running whilst I'm visiting, but the time it takes for an accepted share, and the time most users visit a website, I doubt many sites will get lots of accepted shares.

Exactly.If they made it transparent and came out with it,saying there will be no ads and also we need to keep the page up,i would be the first one to agree with it,and let them mine away.After all,you are getting all those beautiful torrents for free,and how much more "power consumption" is 20% on your cpu do anyway,2$ a year ?
