It really annoys me that, in some instances, they will show the same 'breaking news' for days.
Right. Leading to the front page being all 'breaking news' - Last time I cared to count, there were thirteen 'breaking news' stories on the same page, each with a rolling top banner in one of three or four signal colors.

In Web's infancy, I used a browser where I could hit the ESC key to stop all animations, including GIFs. In those days, you did it because running them all would consume all your available CPU capacity. I wish that back - today I have plenty of CPU capacity, but my capacity for handling visual attention catchers is being overloaded.
