But for something like the Wells Fargo web page, there's not a URL 
printed - like a lot of them say something like
Refresh (0 seconds): http://URLHERE

But Wells Fargo's doesn't do anything like that.. and unless someone knows
the trick to manually reload, it doesn't do anything.  So it seems like
this should be an option then.  I'd turn it on to always refresh.  I mean,
we *do* want this to act as closely to a "standard" (as in GUI) web browser
as possible, don't we?  I do..
