The Algorithm, in Simple Terms

Engine scans for the <meta> tag that has an attribute http-equiv=refresh and a content attribute containing url=.

Why Is it Important?

People with physical disabilities often need more time to react, to type and to complete activities. If the page redirects automatically, it will be difficult for some users to perform the required action before it occurs.
