3rd party sites

A major problem that the web at large has walked into is that many many websites hook into third party libraries to provide basic functionality.

Most of the time this means google apis and of course this is EXACTLY what google intended all along. They have made themselves iindespensible. And they no doubt track all those requests into them for those librarians. If Google disappeared overnight (hope springs eternal) then half the web sites would fall over.
