With the fancy new uploader, you can carry out the following steps:
- Launch the uploader.
- Click on the uploader.
- Wait for your browser to open a file selection window. (On my overloaded, old machine, this regularly takes 4-7 seconds.)
- Select a file to upload.
- Wait for the preview to (upload? and) appear.
- Approve the upload.
- Wait for the final upload, while watching an "Upload..." animation to tell you something is happening.
At steps 3 and 5 (especially 5) there is a period of waiting with no feedback at all. Asking for a progress bar might be too much, but I would like to see some sort of feedback to acknowledge that I have done something, the server knows about it, and I need to be patient.
I dare guess that this is one of those areas where the web-developers have fast machines and super-fast network connectivity, and don't see how long it takes for distant users with machines that really could do with an upgrade.
(This was a problem with the old Image Uploader too, but with the fancy new one, it occurs to me to report it.)
