to me it seems like a nope.

I would think that this is an issue with the browser widget not being able
to detect when the page is completely "rendered" .... which is not the same
as being completely "loaded".....

as soon as I noticed that this message does not work consistently, I gave
up on using it I did not further investigate the reasons for this.
