Here is an amazingly simple and functional script that all web designers/developers will probably start using instantly.
Live.js, one script closer to designing in the browser. Once included to a web page, auto-refreshes it automatically if there is an update to the files used. Simply, when you are editing your HTML, CSS or JS code, your browser will always show the latest version of the page. No more manual refreshes. Updates to the CSS are applied instantly/dynamically and the ones for HTML + JS will refresh the page. At the back-end, the script sends consecutive HEAD requests to the server and detects the updates with the help of the responses.
P.S. The same team also has a Firebug extension named Backfire that does a similar job for CSS files being edited via Firebug…
Thanks for reading this post and as usual, I’m open to suggestion and critics (positive of course).
