Progress bars and why they are awful

The most interesting thing I can say about progress bars is that they start on the left and finish (eventually) on the right.

*G* Sure, but they're a hell of alot better than what came before, masses of scrolling text telling you what just loaded and a spinning /-\| animation :)


Lol I was just ranting. But I think I must spend about an hour a day watching progress bars. I wonder, worldwide, how many hours per day people waste watching them. What if those wasted hours were employed in removing the causes of the delays that progress bars track? That would be progress. I know, it's a silly idea :)
