I keep having the same problems with Woot-Offs and I want to get it fixed before the next one comes around. After an item is sold while I’m waiting on the next item, I can hit refresh or F5 every second, but no matter what, when a new item does come up, it always says 96% remaining or 97% remaining. Never 100% remaining. That makes me think that I’m not seeing the item as quickly as others do.
Also, during a sale, if I refresh several times in a row, often the % countdown increases briefly before returning to a lower value. That makes me think that it’s falling back on a cached screen instead of showing me the latest.
I’m using Chrome, updated to the latest version, and I’ve done everything I can to try to turn off the cache during a Woot-off, including doing the developer options trick. Any suggestions?
