Can't say I've ever noticed it trying to send me malicious downloads. The php classes are themselves variable, but that is no criticism of the website itself. On occasions it has been terribly slow, but recently has been ok. It is a useful site.
Useful PHP resources. I subscribe to their newsletter primarily for the security updates. Never a problem with the site trying to download any unauthorized software. The newsletter subscription I have gets me ONLY 1 sometimes as many as 2 messages a week. The site does, however, lack for any kind of aesthetic quality. Then again do they really need it for what they do?
