    Gmail from Google (and I think Google Reader) automatically updates in the browser when there's a transaction that affects what's on the screen, e.g., the number of unread emails. Could we have this with RHP too, so the number of games waiting would automatically update, or if we're looking at My Games it's display would too?

    I find problems with those autoupdates, they can be very very buggy. Gmail does it well, but lots of other sites I've been to are liable to refresh when you're in the middle of something and possibly screw up a chess move.
    If you're using Firefox, there's a reload extension you can get. That's what I use on the mygames list, it lets you set the page to refresh every 30s, 1 minute, whatever you like.

    it's the first on the list. It'll do everything you're looking for, but beware of it reloading when you're in the middle of something!

    Yes, I find that the auto-updates trouble me. I'd rather not have them.
