So don't use it :-)

Something that really upsets me with a great many pages is the way their
logos or whatever are too wide for the normal window (540 for my version
of Netscape, 600 for if I'm feeling generous and am using a decent
machine). The ability to scale the images to fit would obviously be useful
only in some cases, but for large image logos I certainly would use it.
(Oh, and Lynx would work perfectly well with it ... :-).
