When I middle-click (for new tab) the website in "Turn right onto ferry Harwich Harbour Ferry · website" I get a warning that a XSS attack attempted to redirect me from harwichharbourferry.com to seeinside.link - has cycle.travel been broken into?

I don’t think so – seeinside.link appears to be a service that the Harwich Harbour Ferry website is using to embed a Google panorama. Not sure why a browser would report that as XSS but I’m 99.99% sure it’s not an issue on cycle.travel.

Very odd. I wonder if the browser is attributing it to the wrong website because of which tab is in front. I'll go dig in the source code. Thanks.
