Windows 8
Google Chrome

Deleted anything neowin from history.
Dumped the cache
Deleted all neowin cookies.

Open up again, and the damn 4 square ajax loading spinner stays on nearly every page.

I was just about to post this exact same issue. It's been happening on all of my machines (all Windows 7, viewing the site with Chrome) for weeks now. It's supremely annoying.

Front page and news articles from the front page, for me.

As my post here came through it seems like it's currently limited to the front page...

Just like to say it's been like this for a long time for me.

Site still works fine. Just always has the loading square in the top right

If I had to guess, its related to the notifications. Will have another dev look at it in the morning.

If you mean PM notifications, that's working. The comments, however, are not working for me either in IE10 in addition to the bug I filed earlier.

This is the behavior as well on Firefox/Windows 7 and Safari on Mac OS X. Haven't noticed it in iOS. The spinner sometimes seems to get stuck spinning (although I'm not always sure if it is just getting some content somewhere very slowly) but everything still seems to work OK. I haven't had issues where I am unable to respond to comments due to it (I think)...

It shows when the minispy is updating, or when you are saving a post in the forums.. I'm on Chrome Beta/Windows 8 and it doesn't stick for me, but we'll get Redmak to take a look.

Out of curiosity, are you using AdBlock on Neowin? because I believe that blocks certain elements of the minispy, which we can't do anything about anyway..

OK at a guess, it's to do with the load more stories bit at the bottom of the main page. It should only ever show though when you click the link to load more stories. I'll bug Redmak when he comes online about it.

I see it on the forums mostly. In threads as well. I have adblock installed but disabled for this site so I don't think it has to do with that.

It's something in the tracking protection list I was using. Disabling with the "no" symbol in the address bar made the spinner go away.

Not sure it fixes the other issues yet. :)

I just finally used Ad Block to create a filter and selected the spinner and blocked it to finally get rid of it.

Had this issue with IE10; blocked it with a custom stylesheet:

[code]
.spinner[id="ajax-spinner"] {
display: none;
}
[/code]
