The worse slide show experience on the net

I generally enjoy Forbes.

But they really have the worse online slide show experience ever.

You can stop the automatic slide show, but you can’t click through page by page.  You stop, then start again.  No manual control. And every stop and start requires an entire page refresh.  Kids, if you want to see what the ‘net looked like in 2002 go look at the link at the bottom of this post.

And if you do pause for 600 seconds or so (say to answer an important email from your boss) then the entire site auto-refreshes.  For no reason whatsoever!  You are in a slide show – the contents are NOT changing every 600 seconds!

Anyway, I really hate watching slide shows on Forbes.  I’ve seen much better slide show implementations in free widgets!
