"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.

but it's fine. FINE.
