However, I was having a lot of troubles to get it working as intended. On some browsers it would work, on some others it wouldn't. On some browsers I would know how to fix the issues while in some others remained a complete mystery.
This was no longer the simple solution I was hoping to apply and found a nice alternative: Meta tags.
The concept is simple, just add a meta tag requesting for the page to be reloaded within some seconds in the future. Simple, practical and works across all browsers.
Some obvious side effects: it will reload the whole page instead of a silent AJAX-style update. Other than that, it does get the job done in a stable manner.
Credits go to the about.com page that has a nice tutorial: http://webdesign.about.com/od/metataglibraries/a/aa080300a.htm
It is nice to enjoy the simple beauty of NoJax.
