Question The android download link is not safe, I get a warning from both edge and firefox

on this page, the last post has a link its going to a website that both microsoft edge and firefox say it not safe to even download the file, its blocked by default in either browser talking about how the download to it can be hijacked by hackers.
I was able to get the windows version just fine, but winamp doesn't seem to be around in android store currently I got my tablet on android 11 for my samsung galaxy tab, also the downloads are shady they should be apk files not in zip format for android devices. I don't see any reason to zip a file that small.


also found offical link above which I trust more than the other link found here

Free APK? page on this forum, has a unsafe download links I think. page below marked as closed but really if its unsafe don't you think the links should be disabled on there to keep your users safe from virus and stuff like that or hackers?

you know that the first link is from 2015 and the last one from 2019?

browsers these days want a HTTPS link
so all HTTP links are seen as dangerous

it doesn't mean they are not safe.... I could open the last link without any problems.
