How do I detect new questions on a question and answer site?

Hello experts.  I belong to a site where I am an expert and I answer questions posted by visitors to the site.  I want to know if it is possible to create a macro, plug in, or write code that will be able to detect when new posts are submitted and then click on the link to these new posts as displayed in my web browser.  I use both IE and Opera as browsers.  If I get a solution for IE, I will also need to know how to get IE to automatically refresh on a time interval.  Thanks.

    Sure.  I answer questions posted on the following domain  I want to be able to automate the process of clicking on new questions as they are posted to the site.  I do not have server side access.  I have access to a section of the site were the questions are posted-they are displayed in rows in a large text box in what looks to be a spread sheet.  Each question is hyperlinked, when you click on the question, you are directed to a new page where you may answer the question, much as I am doing right now.  So I really need a client side script or visual basic code (I don't know if this is possible with java on the client side) to monitor new updates or posts while the page is loaded in my browser, and will automatically execute a click event on the question.  I would love to be able to give it parameters so that it only clicks on certain questions.
