Remotely refreshing multiple browsers during web testing

| tags: web, programming

I'm working on the rewrite of Tar Heel Reader and testing it on desktop, iPad, iPod Touch, and IE6-8. I hate manual steps in my edit/test loop. The i* devices are particularly bothersome because I push my changes, pick up the device, hit the home button to wake it up, slide-to-unlock, and then hit the tiny refresh button. There had to be a better way.


How many Tar Heel Reader users have Javascript disabled?

I'm redesigning Tar Heel Reader in hopes of taking load off the server and making the site friendlier to tablets and phones. Over the last few weeks I did a mockup with jQuery Mobile that works well enough on mobile devices but it was just kludged into the current system and it didn't work at all on IE6. So, I've decided to back up and rethink things.
