I'm using the ISpy method (NOW) but I didn't know it existed before reading this post earlier today. I was looking for something like this on the site a while back, is it listed anywhere? Are there other features like this that may be lingering around that we don't know about?
I think it's great and I will be using it for sure.
BTW, I havn't been using the auto reload on Opera, because I find that it is annoying, as it slows down the browsing I am doing on my own. I tend to go and refresh the pages I want anyway.
He didn't say what he needs it for, but your guess might be right.
The downside of the other auto-refresh methods is it reloads the page no matter what you're doing. You might be going to push a "Reply" button and it reloads. A new post may have been added, so now things shift and the button has moved... Or, what if you have a reply box open and are typing in it ? Some browsers and/or websites will clear the text box ! That would be real annoying !!
