It's a website that runs a javascript - which potentially could be malware. You can install the free McAfee site advisor which helps a little, but you never can be 100% sure of what you are getting. If you have a good security suite and the Spybot TeaTimer (which checks whether someone wants to muddle with your registry) running, there is not much to be afraid of. Here is an article that gives some more details http://www.walkonmypath.com/pe.....ndows-ie7/

english, you bring up a very good question. But what can we do. It's the same as asking why intelligent people would want to start a war.
