Javascript refresh utilizing HTTP 1.1

Quick question here. Any way anybody can think of to utilize Javascript
to refresh the same page every 5 seconds w/o actually creating a new
HTTP connection - meaning taking advantage of HTTP 1.1 protocol.

using "refresh" will actually create a whole new connection.
Thanks in advance, Eugene B

I'm not sure how you could refresh the page without opening a new
connection... That's just the nature of the web. Why do you need to
refresh every 5sec?
