designers, I think.
On the one hand a script resizer offers a service to people unaware of
their own browser's capabilities. It is a nice extra without making
anything difficult for those with scripting off, that's all good.
On the other hand it reinforces the wrong notion, that the designer is
the arbiter of how a page is to be viewed, and it takes people away from
learning about browsers, that's all bad.
I do not offer any sizers on principle myself, as there's no place for
them, when the web is used sensibly. But on the other hand stupid people
not knowing the first thing about their tools and not the least bit
prepared and able to learn are a huge majority. So catering for the
reader as he is and not as I want her to be, one might well go for
option number one. It's not my way, but I wouldn't call it wrong.
