Here’s a tip for Google Chrome users who use web apps that require manual refreshes to stay up-to-date. This includes, but isn’t limited to, apps like Instapaper and TeuxDeux. The tip is a tip from a blog called ThansCorner (which, in turn, got the code from a Chrome forum). All you need to do is set up a bookmark within Chrome to and point it to the following URL:
timeout=prompt(“Set timeout [s]“);
fr4me=’<frameset cols=\’*\’>\n<frame src=\”+current+’\'/>’;
All you have to do after that is click on the bookmark, specify the auto-refresh time in seconds, and then host a party (or something).
[Note: This is a Chrome-specific tip -- Firefox users have so many plugins that they can auto-refresh in their sleep.]
