Even though our internet speed is light years faster than what it was before YouTube, it still seems like videos don't load as fast as they should. Even on YouTube or Vimeo or any streaming video website worth a damn, you run into hang ups and a stubbornly stuck progress bar for no apparent reason.
Less satiable websites trap you in buffering purgatory. WHY? It doesn't make sense! The only reasonable explanation is that the lemmings behind a website who drag the progress bar have mechanical failures every single time a video loads. It's the only thing that makes sense.
