    Dark pattern, annoys people

    If I keep a tab open, my intention is come back to it later. Why mess with that and annoy people? Not only will people be annoyed by a blinking tab, but they won't see the name of your website. I automatically close tabs that do this. Let's not make the web any more annoying than it already is.

    Creative

    Irritating to see a blinking tab. Will definitely close the tab.

    I have a feeling this will decrease customer interaction. People don't want to see annoying website behavior while browsing. A blinking tab is a straight up 'NO'. It's creative though ๐Ÿ‘Œ

    Easy to set up and awesome. It works. Simple. Free

    Cons:ย 

    I can't think of any.

    Distraction is a killer in e-commerce. People can be browsing and then 'life happens'. Kids, phone calls, phone notification, game notification, Facebook bings etc etc.

    I always have 15+ tabs open so when I saw this product in action on a store I had to ask them HOW they were doing it. I wanted it on mine. It's really is genius.

    Understand that some people might not like it...blah to them. If it gets people back to my site then I LOVE IT. If they close the tab to my store, no harm done, they had effectively left the store anyway, at least it brought them back.

    I probably wouldn't use it with the beep on e-commerce but even that feature is not intrinsically 'bad'. If it was on a site/page with a form or something that 'times out' it could be and important and valuable timesaver for a customer to be brought back in a timely manner.

    Thank you for making it a FREE tool. It's very much appreciated.

    Irritating

    I don't think it will increase CR, it will rather cause the tabs to be closed.

    Seems very childish.

    Annoying

    Please don't start using this. We don't need yet another annoying, distracting thing like this.
