Today it makes Safari hypnowheel the window forever; Firefox hypnowheels for 2 minutes then Flash crashes:
This is awesome.
Also, note the "G+ = 63, FB = 3.5k". I should just rip out all those G+ widgets, but their epic failure makes me a little happy every time I see them proudly advertise it like that.
I've never grasped the reasoning for "liking" something, either G+ or FB. I've never done it. I (and my web browser) would be much happier of all that stuff would just...go away.
It's a minimal effort mechanism for sharing a web page with your "friends".
Stuff B Gone.

If you're looking for livestreaming that works, adjusts dynamically when bandwidth sucks, try twitcasting - http://www.twitcasting.tv
Did they really have no English speakers anywhere in the process that lead to choosing that name?
No, afraid not - totally Japanese homegrown and originally deeply integrated with Twitter, hence the name.
The hypnowheel is the NeXT sign of quality, showing that the Mac is now built on a robust foundation.
If they'd chosen BeOS as the foundation instead of NeXT the system would just silently hang. Be decided that busy indicators like an hourglass or hypno-wheel were an admission of failure and so they just didn't implement them. This was thought to encourage developers not to write BeOS applications that leave the user waiting around - and it clearly worked, most developers did not write such applications or indeed any BeOS applications at all.
Ironically the hypnowheel is often (not always) a sign that the foundation is alive and well: it's the WindowServer's way of letting you know that an app is not responding to UI events.
And little in the way of things like printer drivers.
not so much Be, as barely Was.
