^ The use of such 'false counters'. (Counts up in specific intervals)
Why do web designers still choose to use this? At first it was a fad, but now it's just transparent, isn't it? Do people really see this and think 'woah, it's live!', whereas it's simply just increasing by say, 1MB every physical second?
This, to me, is a blatant act of trickery and I feel like I'd be less inclined to use/buy from these people. Is it just because I'm tech-savvy that I can see past this?
