create new tag
, view all tags
Need a better title.

Every once in a while, I come across a web page that reloads when I don't expect it. What I mean is:

  • some web pages reload if I change the size of my browser (like clicking on the "min/max" decoration in the window titlebar)
  • sometimes I've loaded a page into a tab (of konqueror, most recently) by either the "open in background tab" choice on the context menu, or by opening a new tab with <ctrl><shift>n and pasting in a link. When I later click on that tab to view the page, the page clears and reloads.

I consider this behavior objectionable.

I'll collect sample headers under notes to try to see if I can spot what causes the behavior.




First Example

from http://www.zdnet.com.au/itmanager/strategy/story/0,2000029582,20275117,00.htm this page reloads every time I go back to its tab here is the header from this page:

<title>It's a Matrix moment for Linux: ZDNet Australia: IT Manager: Strategy</TITLE>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/common/css/all.css" />
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/common/css/ie.css" />
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/common/css/1.css" />
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/common/css/zd2.css" />
<meta name="keywords" content="code,commentary,gpl,hacks,judge,licence,linux,peter,programming,sco,source,unix,">

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="900">

<link rel="stylesheet" href="/common/css/zdnet.css">

Maybe the &lt;meta http-equiv="refresh" content="900"> line is the cause of the behavior??  _Or maybe it doesn't reload every time I view the page &mdash; could the 900 be a 900 second timeout, so if I re-view the page 15 minutes after it loaded it is refreshed (reloaded)?_  (I'm assuming that the problem is in the HTML header/head, not in the body.)
