I've seen blogs where users' comments automatically display as they're submitted and you can view them without refreshing the page. Is this available in WordPress?

Is this available in WordPress?
No and to be honest only new bloggers who have very few posts and comments ask this question. The front pages of our WordPress blogs are designed to load quickly and showcase content so comments are collapsed on that page. By clicking the comments link or the post title on the front page the posts will open on their own page where all comments display below them.
In a new blog one does not have many posts or comments. In an established blog with many comments if the comments did not collapse on the front page there would be serious performance drawbacks. The page would take a long time to load and page loading time is a page ranking factor. We have only seconds before visitors refuse to wait and click out.
