Some sort of Twitchplayer.swf thing attempted to download itself
So I was just on the front page and suddenly this appeared on my phone:
I can only assume this is unfriendly, right? Not that I'd ever download such a thing voluntarily, but had I been on my PC it may have been a problem as I don't think I would've gotten a pop up about it.

I'd go as far as to say it's unfriendly. I don't see a Twitch Cast on the Homepage on my PC let alone on a mobile device that wouldn't be able to run it properly (Hence the possible request to download the swf).
I don't personally have an Iphone so I'm not 100% sure, but do they open popups as a standalone tab or on the original page?

I block all script downloads by default so I wouldn't even know if it was trying but assume any file you don't ask for is a trojan and be careful with files you do ask for.I'm failing to writing a blog, specifically about playing games the wrong way

I've noticed the same thing myself today while browsing on Firefox on Ubuntu at work.
