Oh god the redirects!
« on: 15 Jan 2015, 08:18 »

I just visited the QC main page on my phone and immediately got redirected to some afftrx spam URL. Tried it again with the same results. I'm not on wifi and on an iOS phone so I suspect this isn't a problem on my side. Anyone else having issues with redirects off the QC landing page?

Not for me. It might be a rogue advert.

Flash-player has been as unstable as heck for a while now. Even on my desktop PCs, some adverts crash on loading and it has the effect of crashing my browser on my Android tablet. Some sites with a certain density of Flash-player ads are basically un-loadable on mobile devices for me.

Yeah, I've been considering for a while just uninstalling Flash on my Windows laptop. The only thing I ever use it for anymore is Youtube videos and Google Maps Street View, and even then it's so unstable it usually doesn't work.

I have not allowed that abomination on my computer for years.

If you can identify the ad responsible, Jeph blocks bad ones routinely.
