Since FreshPorts started caching the HTML, the watch list count started to lag. At present, it is refreshed only when the port is updated. The BETA website has a patch for this. It should go into production soon.
To play with the patch, login at the BETA website, and add/remove a port to/from your watch list. Watch how the watch list count total changes immediately.
This will go to production soon.
This is in production now.
