Yeah it is, and I got a little more confused when there is nothing at cloudfront.net but a parked site.

Have you tried googling for cloudfront?

"Amazon CloudFront

It's basically a web host.

I agree with Stellaknits. You guys are so tech savy. I have been having a terrible lag time for days. While I am typing a description or convo it freezes up on me for a bit.

Totally right. The "doug1izaerwt3" name certainly looks odd, but it's part of our kissmetrics implementation and unfortunately I don't think we have control over the naming.

This isn't a virus, spyware, or malware.

CloudFront is an web site delivery service, owned by Amazon. Even though this script is being served by an Amazon service, no data about your browser or visit on Etsy is being given to Amazon.

Maybe the amazon servers hosting the script are running slow

I noticed cloudfront the other day and thought it was related to the kissmetrics thing. Glad my guess was right.
