"On a few occasions, I have seen progress bar updates take up more time than the actual work. Especially dangerous with vsync on." -- id Software Technical Director John Carmack, stating something I think we've all suspected.

That is very true with application programming. Web programming, progress bars are the devil. Usually I just fake them so they don't actually eat up any performance but give the user the illusion that they are receiving actual feedback. Works out pretty well as long as nothing breaks.
