    >what program would they be using?<
    I think they probably have their own programmers 🙂

Didn’t manage to see the page at the time of the update, but isn’t that just a auto refresh of the page every x seconds with the title changed on the web page (new page served by the web server)?

lol :redface:

would that mean they would be creating a new page or just updating the current title on the current page?

The website page can have a in the head section. In this case, browser refreshes (reloads from the website) the page every 60 seconds. On the web server if the score has changed the page title is changed to show the new score (done on the current page). So when the browser resfresh happens it shows the updated title as the page has updated since it last refreshed the page.

I did put some html in my comment above (in the first line) which must have got filtered out. The html to make the browser refresh the page uses meta http-equiv=”refresh” (This is used in the head section of the html page – loads of examples of how to use on google).

Thats an awesome feature to have, but for a site that is less often indexed or crawled by search engines, I don’t know how useful it would be.
