- Realtime Reddit

Script Summary: Adds a checkbox to /new and /comment pages which enable loading of new comments & links in realtime as they're created.


NB. When visiting '/new' pages, ensure you're set to 'new' and not 'rising'.

Refresh intervals:

The refresh rate intervals are calculated in real-time based on the average length of time between new items on the page you're currently viewing. This means a busy subreddit will see far more frequent page updates. Requests are capped at between 5 seconds and 5 minutes.

Hover over the realtime checkbox to view the current refresh interval.


  • Make the script work on nested comment pages, (it currently only works on listings pages which are sorted in date order).
