Well, the site DOES auto-download a file linking to their audio feed when you visit the site, which I found fairly invasive. All it did was open iTunes, but I really dislike it when sites download stuff without my asking.

No one ever claimed that Wow-radio was a well-coded site. ^^

Haha yup you're right, we never claimed we had a good site :)As the guys have said, Google have now recertified the site and the security issue that caused the warning has been closed. The site doesn't actually autodownload a file at all. You're probably referring to the on-site player applet, which hooks up to your windows media player, realplayer or similar program. Perhaps it does do something when you've only got iTunes installed, who knows? We have a fully flash player in-beta that will soon allow you tune in without any external apps or downloads. We're looking forward to releasing that.
