I've never understood the "new since" feature, which, at best, seems to track new activity in the last X minutes, not whether I've actually loaded a page meanwhile. Somewhere between server and client caches, cookies, timezones, and the underlying code, there seems to be a fair amount of "play."

I've always wished it wouldn't release new comments to a thread unless I clicked on that thread.
