Show other users Actions - Which is the best approach?

Hello all,

I have a unique need that I haven’t had before. My need is that I would like to have a web-based application that would allow users to be on a page, but without refreshing the page every 5 seconds, it would show other users clicks.

Example: I have a user login system and when a button is clicked, all users viewing the page immediately see “User has clicked button X”.

I would certainly rather stay away from flash if I could get away with it and use something like jQuery. Any examples or links to tutorials would be awesome! I’m willing to try myself, but not finding much from Google right now.

Still hoping someone can help me out on this. Still haven’t found anything on it.
