I'm no techie but I think it would increase bandwidth consumption also.
It could be a preference.
Do you want to autorefresh yes/no? If yes, have a dropdown of 5,15,30,60 minutes. Then when the page is rendered, add a META-REFRESH tag with whatever interval the user wants.
I have like a zillion browser windows open and would be nice to just be able to look over to see if it's my turn to move--without having to hit F5 or the Refresh button.
Just a suggestion of course....
