Wootalyzer didn't alert for me until the event was almost over. Wooters.us was closer, but I'd already clicked I Want One in my F5'ed Firefox window before Wooters alerted so this one is completely honest.
For me, Wootalyzer has lagged to the point of being worthless for almost two years now.

I F5'ed Chrome a couple of times but it didn't get through until the sale was over, giving me the twin error messages of "Sold Out" and "Already Purchased" (the latter is one that you want to see).
All of my Craps are via Firefox.
I had the same experience. I clicked on Chrome first to buy one (wife's account) and then on Firefox (my account). Chrome got me to the purchase screen first by a large margin but Firefox got me to the stupidly large button and made the sale. Chrome was still spinning its wheels trying to load the confirmation page when it sold out. Weird.
