I checked the link 
It's a gimp script, but the web server sets the HTTP header
Content-Type: application/octet-stream

On my system application/octet-stream is associated with 
KMPlayer, and set to use it as external viewer.  And that's 
what happens here.  

The Content-Type header should  be text/plain instead or something
but that's the web server's fault.
