Apples start page has that count to the 50 billion app downloads and it's causing about 25% CPU usage on my macbook air. I know it's not much(about 1/16 of my total CPU power) but I would think they could do better than that. GIFs usually do less than that. Maybe I'm just nuts but I thought apple was good at making things efficient. I haven't looked into the method they are using to do the incrementing image. Anybody got a better idea for them for less CPU usage? (I realize they probably don't care because this is just a page people will not spend much time on, but this is for a fun challenge to anybody interested) If there isn't a better way, why?
