Contacts API Re Contacts And Browser Caching

Thanks for helping clarifying my question.
Yes I meant the browser was on the standard GMail page viewing

So, assuming you are correct, that Googles “stuff is AJAX”, that means
that I could expect to see the change (after the appropriate
replication interval) by just simply changing the Group I was viewing,
OK so what if the API change was for a different member of the same
When I then select that contact in the browser could I expect to see
the changes?
