The site is loaded with pop-ups, install-on-demand software and ActiveX prompts.
Fortunately, I disable ActiveX downloads as well as Active Scripting on my IE browser so the most I'll ever see are warnings informing me that ActiveX is disable so the pages won't be displayed properly, along with warnings that you must accept download of the malware ladened software the site prompts you to download in order to proceed. I just click the "X" to close these boxes and eventually the covers will load.
Those who use browsers that are not as targeted as IE and have learned from the default low security configurations in IE may not experience what he is referring to.
I aslo use Firefox and Opera, but a properly hardened configuration of IE is still a superior browser to either of these.
