Add a Saft shortcut for page refresh in Safari Web Browsers
If you use Saft, the Safari enhancer from Hao Li, you can add a Refresh shorcut to Saft's contextual menu (Saft also adds a very useful 'Back' button to the top of the contextual menu) In Safari Preferences, click on the Saft tab/icon and select the Shortcuts tab. Add a new shortcut named Refresh (put Refresh in both the Name and Shortcut fields). In the URL field, put:
javascript:window.location=self.location
It's probably debatable whether this is actually a Shortcut; but if you're a contextual menu user, this is a good stop gap until Safari picks up little features like this.

[robg adds: Since Reload Page is already mapped to Command-R, this probably isn't a huge timesaver :). However, it's a good demonstration of how to add your own items to Saft's contextual menus.]

script to auto-refresh Gmail?
Authored by: Michael.Massing on Feb 18, '05 12:25:50AM

This hint reminds me that I've been thinking of trying to script an auto-refresh for Gmail, which is typically the first/leftmost tab I have open in Safari with Saft. This is, as far as I know, the only fix for the typical hang when loading Gmail into Safari.

Any thoughts as to how to specify the page for reload, whether by URL or opening sequence/screen position?

Thanks,
M.
