I really really love the new "My Dashboard" feature on b.m.o, but I find myself refreshing the entire page whenever I switch to that tab, because it's quicker than finding all of the "Refresh" links for the different sections.

It'd be great if the dashboard could refresh itself every N minutes.
we should listen for visibilitychange events, and avoid updating the dashboard if the tab isn't currently visible.
What would be a good value for N minutes? 5, 10? not 1 min I hope :)
i think 15 minutes is reasonable; 10 at a stretch.
I actually think it should refresh also when it is not visible. So that it's "ready to use" when I focus onn it.
Type: defect → enhancement

I can see this happening on a schedule when the tab has focus or triggered when the tab comes back into focus.
