Location: reload()

The Location.reload() method reloads the current URL, like the Refresh button.

The reload may be blocked and a SECURITY_ERROR DOMException thrown. This happens if the origin of the script calling location.reload() differs from the origin of the page that owns the Location object. See Same-origin policy for more information.
