"Reload the page to see detailed information about network activity." implies the Network Monitor will only work after a page refresh. That is false.

It should be something more like "Perform a request or reload the page to see detailed information about network activity." Does that sound ok?

what about emptyNotice1 and emptyNotice0?

You could even name it to startupNotice or something.
