    web browser refresh annoyance

    ok, i searched the bug database and couldn't find anything and i may be the
    only one who is annoyed by this.

    when i'm picking something to play - searching artist, browsing etc..and
    then notice that i have the wrong squeezebox selected - changing the
    squeezebox (say from upstairs to downstairs) refreshes the whole browser and
    i have to start my search all over again. (slimserver 5.4.0)

    i understand this is more of an HTML issue and less of a server side thing.

    anyone else have this annoyance?

    This is needed in order to pass the player variable to the server.

    There is no emergency. Nothing to see here. Move along.

    I tend to use the nearest pc to a given player (I have an hp laptop and an
    ibook). Using the fishbone skin, the cookies store the chosen player. That
    makes it less of a nuisance, but I can certainly understand what you are going
    through. Have you looked at ExBrowse2 or Default2? Both of these rely heavily
    on javascript and XHTML and seem to be much more responsive to changes like
    this, thanks to Jacob's great work on those.
