I’ve noticed that recently view counters no longer show the exact amount of views over 1.000, like they used to.

Is that to save space or what?

    @πάνταῥεῖ They're referring to view counts on, say, HNQs. It reads as "5k", for example, instead of "5138". Hovering over the number will show the exact number of views, as Glorfindel's answer says. – M.A.R. Aug 15 at 10:49

They still do; you just need to hover over the label:

This also works in the question list:

Once a question gets enough views, a handful of views more or less doesn't really matter. The same principle applies to reputation. It's a little harder to see that 98765 < 123456; it's much easier to see that 99k < 123k.

  • Not sure what you mean by “hover” over the label. I still can’t see the precise number. No problem. – Gio Aug 15 at 11:16
  • Hover: move your mouse to the label and wait a second. (If you're using a tablet or smartphone, you're out of luck ...) – Glorfindel Aug 15 at 11:17
  • I see, that’s why it doesn’t work. Good job. – Gio Aug 15 at 11:35
  • Why the downvotes, did I ask in the wrong site? – Gio Aug 15 at 13:06
  • Nope, it's the right site, but I guess (the downvotes are not mine) lack of (shown) research and it's a bit unclear, too. I mean, in retrospect it would be really helpful to know that you're not using a mouse. – Glorfindel Aug 15 at 13:09
