I have been toying around with vim. I have too many plugins and unknown things in my vim rc. Going to start again with it basic.

Wanting to get back into vim and use it as a web editor. One thing I can't figure out is how to preview the file in a browser and have the browser change on source change.

Is this possible, if yes how please ?

so there is livereload for chrome and firefox feedback.livereload.com/knowledgebase/articles/… The exec function in the second solution doesn't appear to work. If I can figure it will have a look. – sayth Oct 17 '12 at 23:28
    
I've never managed to make livereload work reliably. I settled for a browser extension that reloads the page every x seconds. It sounds dumb but it works better than the smart solutions. – romainl Oct 18 '12 at 5:05
