Is a Loading label / notification on link click / redirect necessary?
Nowadays if I click a link the only sign that something is happening or processing is that the favicon on the tab changes into a loading icon. If I remember correctly browsers used to change the mouse cursor to
Anyway my concern is . . When the page is responding slowly the tendency is users that did not notice the loading icon on the tab would spam click a link which would lead to:
click->cancel request->create new request->click->cancel request->create new request->click
Which would technically take even longer for a page to load.
SO should a more noticeable notification be implemented like maybe a Loading at the top or bottom of the screen? Or just leave it as is?
What do you guys think?
