Adding a Gadget Numerous Times to iGoogle

After my friend told me about iGoogle, I've falling in love with it. Because I can organize my stock tickers any way I want, not because some stock broker arranged it the way they think it suits me best. Now I can get all the data I want in one page at a glance.

My favorite iGoogle Gadget is the StockChart gadget, written by Tim Brown. It lets me put a chart of any stock symbol on my page; one gadget per stock symbol. Once you are on the StockChart about page, you can add the gadget to your iGoogle page by clicking on "Add it now" button. But once you do, the button turn into a check-mark and a "Added" notification. You can't add the gadget again without coming back to the about page.

For a stock portfolio, you have to add a ton of these gadget, having to find the about page again through the iGoogle add gadget interface is a lot of work. The easiest way to add it again is to refresh the about page. After refreshing it, you'll get the "Add it now" button back. And you can do this as many times as you want.
