This drives me crazy!

I love the "Interesting Tags" feature of SO. I use it almost exclusively and go there right when I hit the SO homepage.

The problem is, the way it renders now, the tags appear right away without the "Remove" buttons (little "X"). For a good 2-3 seconds they aren't there. They jump in seemingly trying to catch me trying to click on a tag. There's not a confirmation on this remove - they just disappear. This makes me utter a curse word I'd rather not repeat.

My problem isn't the lack of confirmation (yes!)... it's that the "X"'s are delayed (no!).

Does this drive anyone else crazy??? Am I the only one addicted to this feature?

This is my only complaint about SO. Not bad, really.

Edit: I was thinking. If you were able to just leave room for them, that would be perfect. I don't care that they appear late.

Is this really a feature request? I dunno... sorta borderline. Seems sorta buggy to me. – Anderson Imes Aug 10 '09 at 3:02
Behaves as designed (done with javascript), you're asking for it to be improved. – Ian Elliott Aug 10 '09 at 3:09

I generally just wait until they finish rendering.

Sure... not because you want to, but because you have to. It's nitpicky really, but it would improve the usability of the site a lot for me. This is my current "workaround", as well. Also, you'll notice I didn't respond with "why didn't I think of that". I think this is because I'm growing as a person. – Anderson Imes Aug 10 '09 at 2:36
@Anderson Imes - See I didn't point out that you really did say it either. :) – EBGreen Aug 10 '09 at 3:16
