refresh stream without refreshing page
As so often happens to me, this has probably been discussed already, and I am unknowingly kicking a dead horse. If this is the case, just point me in the direction of previous conversation and we can stop wasting our time.
TO THE POINT!
Now that chat has been mainlined pretty hard, it might be time to figure out a way to keep a chat session going, i.e. keep from logging out of the XMPP server when refreshing the stream.
Could there be a way to refresh the stream without refreshing the page? I'm thinking of a refresh button somewhere.

Basically, I propose that, rather than refreshing the page to see if there are notifications, the Stream button could have a red number in the upper-right corner, indicating that there are new posts, and if the nav bar could auto-update when there are new notifications or PMs.

This is a proposal easy to agree on, however the actual implementation is another story. Not sure who gets to decide development priorities, but I would say this is rather low for the ratio benefit / cost.

That's a good first step, but with the chat feature on its way, we'll also face another problem: refreshing the page will also close the conversation window.
We will need to address that too at some point.
