Most browsers seem to have a pretty good sized page loading indicator that sits in one spot at the top of the browser. Brave browser has little tiny indicators on each individual tab. Also the page load progress indicator is very tiny. As I navigate around throughout the day I can never tell if my page is loading without searching and squinting to see if I can spot the progress bar or the ‘working’ indicator, both on mobile and desktop.
I feel like a master animated gif in one fixed identifiable spot of the browser at the top would help. It’s nice to have one spot to go to for instant feedback instead of hunting around tiny tabs for a clue as to what’s going on. Maybe you could even make the Lion’s Head roar or something. Make his mane wiggle or something just so we know that something is happening.
