Am using Chromium version 24.0.1312.52 (175374) under ArchLinux, and have noticed an obscure thing, every-time I post a comment or an answer, it seemingly "jumps"...

Let me explain:

  • I post a comment or an answer, as of "right now" (at the moment I submit), for example 23:45, Chromium says "x minutes ago", (in line with the previous example, "t0mm13b - 14 mins ago") the minute I post the comment, same applies for answers... where x is so far off (either in past or future...)

Has anyone else noticed this or is it a bug in the browser?

    Your system time is close to "real" time I assume? :P – Matthew Read Jan 26 '13 at 2:51
  • @MatthewRead ha! NTP is running on the network and is close to real time... xD :D – t0mm13b Jan 28 '13 at 15:32

This can really only mean that your computer's system clock is set incorrectly. We work on the assumption that a visitors system clock is correct; see this answer of mine for some reasoning behind that.
