 > You mean the problem is Cloudflare, right? (And it's not really a
 duplicate. While I could reproduce the issue in #22364 and verified that
 it got fixed in the alphas, the site is basically busted for me right now)
 Yes, the problem is still Cloudflare. When i first visited the link the
 whole site was missing styling (is this what you meant with busted?) which
 was also caused by Cloudflare by shielding the style sheets behind

 I verified this by looking at the Network tab and directly visiting the
 style sheets. After solving the CAPTCHAs and reloading the original link,
 the website looked okay.

 There is something weird going on with the tabs on the website though.
 Using the Network tab in the Developer Tools and clicking on the tabs on
 the website, it displays the resource it's trying to load. Looking at the
 response in the sidepane shows the page source which looks like the
 typical Cloudflare CAPTCHA page. However, going directly to the resource
 works without a CAPTCHA being presented. I believe this is some quirk in
 how Cloudflare determines what requests are suspect.
