when does google calendar refresh?

does google calendar refresh without signing out or closing/re-opening a new browser? maybe a broader question is what triggers any application to "refresh"?

new emails pop up on my outlook express account without any action from me.

if someone added an entry to a date on google calendar, would it "pop up" simlutaneously on my computer?

Google Calendar using a programing language called Ajax. What it does is transfer data back and forth with out refreshing the page. So you can have new appointments on you google calendar show up without the page refreshing. The Ajax works in pretty close to real time.

Google Calendar by default does not have a pop up to let you know when a new event has been added.
