    The clock is in Javascript. Time zones in JavaScript historically are non-trivial since everything is based on the client clocktime. Fortunately, there is moment.js and moment-timezone-with-data.js that vastly simplify getting the current time at the NYSE. The clock keeps ticking correctly irregardless of which tab is active. I find the clock to be also functional since the WSBoy is worn over where I would usually be wearing my watch.

    I used the Moment-Timezone library, which returns, well, all the timezones! Super easy to get started with, just add using npm or yarn to add it, and then add import moment from 'moment-timezone'; to the top of your file.
