If you're a web developer, I'm sure you'll repeat the sequence CTRL+S / ALT+TAB / F5 a lot of times in a day; save / switch to browser / reload is one of the most boring "manual batch" that a web developer does during their work day. We could save a lot of time (and key presses) if the browser could automatically reload the webpage when needed.
