I don’t particularly enjoy the workflow of writing code on the text editor and refreshing the browser page to see if the page turned out as you wanted it.

This is a big pain point, and that's where tools like Live Server come in - It won't necessarily help much if you have a single screen you're working on, but it helps if you have screen real estate to show the code window and browser window at the same time. :)

There are many cases where you do not want your website to refresh (send a new HTTP request.) - so, it depends. But there are tons of solutions for that for each editor.

Maybe. So far not hit any of those rare edge cases. If I make a change I would want to check it immediately 99.9% of the time.
