Auto-Refresh Any Webpage Every Five Minutes (useful for Fantasy Football scores?)

Here is a script I put together tonight because I wanted my laptop to sit on the coffee table and display my two Fantasy match-ups, refreshing the scores every five minutes or so.

Here is what the script looks like in action:

You'll see a floating yellow box at the upper left corner of the browser window, telling you how many seconds remain until the page is reloaded. 

Firefox with the  Greasemonkey Add-On
Chrome with Tampermonkey

Go to here and click the install button.

By default the script will refresh every five minutes, but if you add any other URL to the include list, it should also work.

This script and others I've written are also on github.
