Personally, I can't stand having anything inline (this includes video,
music, even flash, depending on its usage). Web browsers are browsing the
web. KDE is my desktop of choice, and Konqueror does this by default. It's
the first thing I disable after installing. I would do the same thing in
Gnome were that to become the default behavior.

That said, it seems to be the expected behavior for users coming from other
OSes (read: Windows), and it's simple enough for me to change (at least in
KDE), so I could go either way.
