You can access the online data through LC, either synchronously or asynchronously, and process it as you need in LC.

Then, you can send that data to the browser widget where you use Javascript to display it within the browser, by setting the innerHTML of a div or some other method.

In this way, your data will update seamlessly without having any sort of obnoxious page reload. A page reload might not be bad for a simple page, but can be disruptive for a complex page.

This method also minimizes the amount of data transferred, if that is an issue.
