A recent contact of mine whom I've contracted to do some web design for me has linked me several example sites / templates that he created.  However, I get an odd feeling when I visit these pages as if there's something just slightly off about them.  I fear that just by visiting them I've put my computer at risk.  Could I have an experienced user look them over safely to see if anything fishy is on them?

I will provide the website URL in a PM to experienced Bleeping Computer specialists only so no one accidentally clicks on them that shouldn't.

Or...seeing you use Firefox, you could install the Web of Trust (WOT) add on, and gain some insight from its experience.

Well I'm actually using chrome now ( need to update my preferences ) and I got this odd shield icon on my browser when I visited the page:
