Just a minor FYI - I was watching some YouTube (H.264, not flash) in full screen via Safari the other day, and every few seconds it would slow down in a very noticeable fashion - even stopping for a few hundred milleseconds.

I happened to have another Safari window open to the home page of MacRumors, and sure enough, the slowdown matched when the thingy did its thing.

Killed that Safari window and all became well on the H.264 video side.

Again, just an FYI, I'm not thinking there's anything to address or fix, more of a community announcement.

There is the option to minimize it with the little arrow. Does that work better for you? I believe the aim for this new feature is to try to help less-frequent visitors stay on top of the biggest developments.

Yeah, and it requires one additional click. It is still like an ad. Click on it, then it does something. I ignore it for now.

If you visit MR 50.000 times in one year, then this are 50.000 unnecessary clicks.

So you visit MR 136.99 times a day??

Possibly a teeny bit of exaggeration??

If you visit Macrumors 50,000 times a year, I think the amount of clicks should be the least of your concerns.

The click is stored in a cookie. So it results in 1 extra click depending on how long the cookie is stored (couple of months I think).

The whole block is a work in progress. It will likely change and come and go. Right now we are testing it, and seeing how it's used (tracking how many times its clicked).
