Hey, I’m a fan of Digg and all, but it’s redesigned Spy takes the whole AJAX autorefreshing thing a bitt too farr.
As Daryl says, the best feature is having seizures while watching the diggs go by.
Seriously though, I know there’s a pause button, but it’s so small and hard to see — maybe slow down the stream when you mouseover one of the posts so you can click on it… without it slipping by?
I’m all for a more interactive web, but Frogger never seemed like an ideal interface for consuming news!

Totally agree. It’s insane.
Spy is a nice idea but I can follow it only if it has a reasonable amount of time between refreshes. I have 20 tabs opened at the moment and most likely I lost 50 headlines…
