Every time I open and click on the "questions" tab, the page doesn't update with new questions. Why?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

It is updating just fine for me. – Josh Mein Sep 26 '12 at 12:25
You do not have it ordered by votes, unanswered or similar instead of newest...right?! – Time Traveling Bobby Sep 26 '12 at 12:26
@JoshMein can you check it once? It will not update.. – Mr.Chowdary Sep 26 '12 at 12:28
Just looking at the SO questions list shows 7 questions posted in the last minute - if it was live it would probably scroll past too quicky to be useful. – tombull89 Sep 26 '12 at 13:06
@Mr.Chowdary If you are referring to auto-updating you should be more specific. – Josh Mein Sep 26 '12 at 13:16
@JoshMein I'm trying to be more specific, New bee.. – Mr.Chowdary Sep 26 '12 at 13:30

The main Stack Overflow pages do not use live-updating; it would be too much of a performance penalty on the server due to the high volume of questions.
