Auto Refresh Browser on File Save

I was looking for a tool that reloads static html pages automatically on file save. CodeKit does not work on Mac 10.7.5 and it costs $40. Here is a simple alternative.

1. Install Auto Reload Firefox Plugin
2. Go to Tools -> AutoReload Preferences and turn off notifications. It's a bit distracting.

3. Open the local html file in a text editor.

Now, whenever you save the file, the page will get refreshed automatically. Much faster feedback. I love it.
