Package: PHP Browser Reload
Human testing means that a natural person uses a browser to access the Web application pages. It is possible to confirm that the user performs the desired actions in the application.
Sometimes it is convenient to automate the tests making the current user access the same page again. So the user would need to tell the browser to reload the current page.
This package provides a means to automate the browser reloading process by emulating the user's input to make the browser reload the current page without having a natural person interacting with the browser application.
