Display Users Online Based On Page Viewing - Conclusion
(Page 4 of 4 )

Displaying the number of users online is a great way to let people know that they are not alone in browsing your web site, however there can be some cons to this script as well. If this script has an error, it may not display your page correctly. Some times a users connection may be to slow and it may time out while loading the page, causing the entire contents of the page to become fumbled.

All in all, this script is a wonderful addition to any web page, but I would firstly make sure you have a decent flow of traffic to your web site before using this or a similar script it's no good using the script if you only receive a handful of visitors each day!
