New Feature: real time updates to questions, answers, and inbox
Due to @lunboks' answer, I decided to reword the request. I understand the the main SO page (Top Questions) has a ton of questions, so it was decided to not put a live updater there.
Can't we just add a greater interval for that page, since there are so many questions? That way it's not constantly incrementing? Maybe put it on a 30 or 60 second timer?
