Refresh page automatically with powerful page monitor feature

Image from store Auto Refresh Plus | Page Monitor
Description from store Auto Refresh Plus comes in handy to any users that needs to easily perform automatic web page refresh at certain times. Its also provides content detection support, which is indeed very useful when you need to find content included in a dynamic web page. Key Features 1. Default Time Interval: This feature allows you to set the default time for every page refresh. You can select either the pre-defined time intervals or provide your own custom time interval. 2. Random Interval: Using this feature, you can randomize the time interval of page refreshes. Simply select a minimum and a maximum range of time and it will automatically refresh pages on any random time interval in between those ranges. 3. Auto start URLs: These are a set of URL's that ARP will start to refresh automatically as soon as they're opened by the user in the browser. You can add one or multiple URL's. 4. Refresh Predefined Page: Using this feature, you can refresh a webpage without opening it yourself. Once you put a URL in this feature, it will automatically open the URLs on browser restart and start refreshing them on the default time interval. 5. Refresh Predefined Text: This feature starts refreshing a webpage as soon as some specific text is found on it. To use it, simply insert one or multiple keywords in it on the settings page. As soon as this text appears on a webpage, ARP will start refreshing it automatically with the default time interval. 6. Countdown Timer: You can use the countdown timer if you want to refresh a specific page after a certain amount of time has passed. Simply enable and set the timer, a countdown will begin and as soon as the countdown hits zero, ARP will start refreshing the page with the default time interval. 7. Page Monitor: This powerful feature allows you to monitor a webpage and look for any changes in it. It can be used in two ways - Finding out if some specific text has appeared on the webpage - Finding out if some specific text has disappeared from the webpage Once it finds that some specific text has appeared or disappeared from the webpage, it notifies the user by a Popup notification, alert sound and an email alert. The sound notification can be customized as per your liking. In addition, if your text is a link or a button, ARP can click that for you as well. You must first enable this feature in settings. --------------------------------------------------------------- Version - 7.3.2 || December 21th, 2020 --------------------------------------------------------------- - Added option for auto click on link => in same tab or in new tab - Random Interval Time can be save now! - Focus on Tab Once Target Is Found - Added input in settings to save default keyword for page monitor - Added custom hrs., min, sec in Time Interval - Fixed Play sound from custom link, and for x sec - Fixed some other miner issues --------------------------------------------------------------- Active Support center: We deeply care for our users and are actively working on providing support and adding requested features.

  • (2021-06-07) Sara Nelson: So, honest truth. This Extension doesn't work with Salesforce which makes it not work for what I needed. Ways it doesn't work with Salesforce: - When active, this Extension will cause all Salesforce pages to load/jump to 50% or 100% scroll, which was annoying as hell. Spent like 5 hours trying to figure out what the problem was since it impacted 2 of my computers but not my third, and it was the Extension the ENTIRE TIME. - This Extension has the ability to search for new text on a page. Never worked in Salesforce and I ran numerous tests. On a semi-related note, not a fan of the initial setup of it. It forces you to a page and then you have to custom set a lot of settings (if you want them). But if you forget that you enabled something there, the Extension doesn't tell you when you quick-activate.
  • (2021-05-11) Jackson Ueda: Just amazing, very flexible with configurations
  • (2021-05-09) Muhammad Nouman: I downloaded the app for setting random intervals as it is written in the features but There is nothing like random interval timer. Disappointed
  • (2021-05-03) Михаил Карпенко: То что и нужно было, автообновление страницы до тех пор, пока на сайте не появится нужная инфа
  • (2021-04-30) Volodya Shtenovych: It looks promising with nice functionality but is quite buggy and hangs periodically.
  • (2021-04-27) Zoilo Christiansen: Me quedo con la viejita!
  • (2021-04-24) Phillip Püttmann: Super Extension! Besonders vorteilhaft finde ich, dass man auch eine statische URL angeben kann, die immer nach Ablauf des Timers aufgerufen werden soll.
  • (2021-04-15) Nalla Rohith cTpdWVTbIR: Awesome Extension
  • (2021-04-09) Gosuto Gosetsuke: Not the one im looking for. Once it start, it doesnt stop even when the url changed.
  • (2021-04-07) jn: Superb
  • (2021-03-25) Shabana begum: Loved it
  • (2021-03-25) ErrorPlayz: This is great! It actually does what it says for once I love it! You set when to refresh it, and it does it until you stop it! :D
  • (2021-03-09) Tim: Please have an option for the notification is any change happens on the page! :) Love this extension.
  • (2021-02-18) Antony Freddson: Great idea but for me it doesn't work very well. I'm trying to use this to refresh 4 pages and alert me when an offer of work comes up (which i must respond to very quickly), and here are the problems I'm running into: 1. For some pages I need an alert when it LOSES target text, for others when it FINDS target text. But I have to either use LOSES for all pages or FINDS for all pages. That means I can't get it to alert me correctly for all 4 pages. It would be better if you could freely defined LOSES and FINDS and more than one target text for each page. 2. When it alerts me, but I'm not around - the job offer will disappear - but it stops alerting me. So the next time a job offer appears I no longer get an alert. I have to keep checking if an alert has triggered while I was away from my laptop and then manually start the monitoring again. 3. The open link in new tab functionality doesn't seem to do anything.
  • (2021-01-20) Paweł H.: Just doesn't work. I've set the interval to 5 second, click start and the page doesn't refresh. I've refreshed it on my own, because with last addon you had to refresh once and then it would do it automatically, but this one just simply doesn't work and I don't know what's the issue.
  • (2021-01-17) Gold Sky: очень удобное расширение, особенно функции мониторинга появления и исчезновения заданного текста на странице
  • (2021-01-06) Edgar Ulerio: ¡Excelente!
  • (2021-01-04) Sarwar Hossain Roni: Best tools
  • (2021-01-04) Long Pham: phiên bản mới update rất tốt, đầy đủ tính năng, dễ sử dụng
  • (2020-12-21) Mohsin Alam: Can't thank enough for this extension. Always useing this extension for Random Refresh feature.
  • (2020-12-20) Cal L: The newest update messed up the plugin. Play sound until I stop only plays 9 seconds, play sound for 60 seconds gets cut off a 1/10 of a second.
  • (2020-12-17) Dan Frazier: Handy, but needs to somehow let me know which tab is alerting, assuming I'm refreshing multiple tabs. Maybe a bring tab to front on alert option?
  • (2020-12-09) Nikita Kora: Can you add delay refreshing untill page fully loads? That feature would be nice. Some pages can take a random amount of time to whole load and i need to change timer from 2 seconds to 5 for example, that's frustraiting.
  • (2020-12-09) Piumal Sahasraka: Thank you so much <3
  • (2020-11-29) 01001101 01010111: Very useful. One recommendation, add customizable hotkey to disable/stop the timer with keyboard so you don't have to click the extension and hit Stop.
  • (2020-11-26) TelFiRE: This would be really useful if it was reliable. It has a couple major issues. False positives happen a lot, and most importantly, the "play until I click the notification box" doesn't work at all. It just plays infinitely, there's nothing to actually click. Have to restart entire browser.
  • (2020-11-24) William Cruse: Worked for about a day but now when it finds the things I'm looking for in the page it doesn't make a sound. So basically has become useless for my purposes.
  • (2020-11-11) it mckennafarms: Just installed, and it does exactly what I need, Thank you all other refresh extensions, are a joke, you are the best!
  • (2020-11-09) Tony Henrich: Why on earth it needs read/write permission on website's data. Uninstalling this suspicious extension.
  • (2020-11-07) Venator: Great.
  • (2020-11-02) Timur: Я очень был рад этому приложению много месяцев, но вот последние изменения негативно на него повлияли. :( Приложение не перезагружает как положено. Кажется оно перезагружает страницу/таб из кэша Chrome, но точно не с вебсайта-первоисточика.
  • (2020-11-01) Muhammad Usman Malik: Hate it for permissions.
  • (2020-10-30) M Hassan Noyon: It's doesn't work properly
  • (2020-10-29) Aes: Just what i wanted. Thanks alot to the dev. 10/10
  • (2020-10-23) Lawrence Cheong 章朝隆: Works as advertised. Customizable periods. Countdown shown on the tab. Keep up the good work!
  • (2020-10-16) Adiu Cast: Запрашивает разрешение на редактирование данный веб страницы, угроза безопасности.
  • (2020-10-15) tendies: Great for staying online all the time on Brick-Hill and Roblox.
  • (2020-10-02) nick jones: So far this is the only one with sticky settings. All the other auto refresh extensions have to be reset to the correct refresh time every time you start an instance of Chrome. Let's see how it works in the long term.
  • (2020-09-17) Kumar Pandya: Simple and the regex matching works great!
  • (2020-09-13) J.kevin M: 不错,可以定义一个随机时间数
  • (2020-09-03) Krzysztof Haładyn: The only auto-refresh extension I found with a feature to stop refreshing and let me know when the error disappears from the page - 10/10, would use again if needed. I'd really love to see a feature to stop refreshing based on HTTP error codes in addition to the page content though.
  • (2020-08-24) vamsi panguluri: The page monitor feature is not working...
  • (2020-08-12) Yut: ถ้าไม่มีโปรแกรมนี้ทำงานลำบากมากครับ ใช้งานได้ดีตอบโจทย์คนใช้มาก ๆ ครับ
  • (2020-08-08) Дракоша Пестренький: Я сравнил все расширения для обновления страниц и это хоть и не обновляется, но самое функциональное (и все еще работает). В основном из-за автоматического запуска обновления и уведомлений о появлении текста на странице.
  • (2020-08-08) Kokot Som: The best extension ever thanks to monitoring the page and it worked perfectly for years! Now, it stopped reloading one particular website I need. It shows countdown but not reloading. It does work in the incognito window though so I don't know what the problem is. How can I make it work again? I still rated extension 5 star!
  • (2020-08-06) Gaming NewsTV: Somethings to add: 1- Default text. 2- Find text and play sound / notification after page update and not when countdown ends.
  • (2020-08-03) Pavlo Bilan: Works fine! Thanks!
  • (2020-08-02) venkata pujakiran: Not working for me
  • (2020-02-25) Raisul Islam: Wonderful, Random Interval...Love it!
  • (2020-01-28) Jeewajee Lahore: it's works ok but after a some time it will be stopped then no views are extend.

Latest issues

  • (2021-01-20, v:7.3.2) Rodney Foley: Start Button Does Not Work
    Installed, save default settings, and then went to a tab I'd like to refresh ever few hours setup the interval and clicks start and then nothing happens. The button doesn't animate a click there is not indication of any kind that it is starting. When closing the dialog and reopening it goes back to default settings indicating it wasn't saved for this tab and that its not started. Went and tried it on a dozen more different sites just to test and same issue. Basically this plugin doesn't work at all, based on comments and number of downloads I am sure it works for a number of people however if it doesn't work out of the gate then it is an instant uninstall and try the next extension that does the same thing as there are plenty as I don't have time to troubleshoot 3rd party extensions as I have my own work to do.
  • (2020-12-27, v:7.3.2) J X: Speed of Auto click on the link
    Hi, I have been using the Auto Refresh Plus the newest version since it was released. I found it very useful. Thanks for a great app! One suggestion I have is to let user define the speed on "Auto click on the link (if monitored text or regex have a link)". I tried to time it (set to 1 second refresh) but often it was too slow to auto click the link. Not sure if there is a small time lag between "Found this text on the page" and "Auto click on the link", if quicker, the better! Thanks.
  • (2020-12-22, v:7.3.2) sim l: Setting Menu is gone
    After the new update, the whole setting menu is gone. I click on it, and it just leads me to the Extension download website instead. I can't figure out how to change anything such as the Sound play length and stuff.
  • (2020-12-18, v:7.3.1) Craig Hodge: Play sound
    Since you've redone the extension a couple of days ago, the sound does not play when you set it to play for a set amount of time. The only way I can get it to work is just to let it keep playing until I click on the mute button.
  • (2020-12-18, v:7.3.1) Auto Refresh Plus: Predefined URL Bug Fixed

  • (2020-12-17, v:7.3.0) Bob Pimm: The update needs changing back

  • (2020-11-20, v:7.1.9) Chris Tabisz: Suddenly stopped working in chrome
    Hi, I was using your app to gain contracts on a website marketplace. Suddenly it stopped working and I have tried everything. It counts down but then doesn't refresh. It only refreshes if I change the tab to something else, then it will return to the original page URL i entered and refresh it. If I leave it on the marketplace site, the screen flashes when it counts down to zero but the page doesn't reload. I removed all other extensions and tried on different devices and it doesn't seem to work. At first I thought the website blocked it somehow, but then I used a worse autorefresh plugin in firefox and it worked (albeit unreliably). I would love to continue using your plugin as it was so reliable and easy to use. Do you have any idea for a workaround? Is this an issue you are familiar with? Any help would be much appreciated. Many many thanks, All the best
  • (2020-11-18, v:7.1.9) Gabe Locke: General Questions
    Hello. I'm new to this extension and have some general questions. 1) Is the regex notation Perl regex compliant and/or is there info around the supported commands with it? 2) It seems like the option to notify on 'Find' or 'Lose' text is not session independent. Even when I open a new browser and try to change what I want to look for, those settings carry over and change an existing browser session. 3) For the notify on 'Lose' option, does the text first need to be available on the screen prior to the first refresh? If I put in a dummy string value and attempt to notify if this isn't found, I do not get a notification.
  • (2020-11-18, v:7.1.9) Wilbert Cedeno: AND and OR Scenarios
    I would like an option to enable the alarm if the text is lost or gained, not just one or the other. One scenario is to lose "out of stock" and gain "session inactivity". After refreshing for some time, this issue occurs, but it doesn't sound the alarm of losing the text since it's a popup on top of the same page. I have to manually check it if the session expires.

  • (2020-08-22, v:7.1.9) Melania Trump: Plugin gets muted (sound alert quits working) after few hours of use
    hi, i miss many alerts because after several hours of use the alert sound quits working altogether and i gotta boot my win10 computer before i start to get sound alerts again...i would love it if this thing got fixed, i wish you'd introduce also visual alerts like chrome starts flashing red and white / turns red. that would help users in noticing the alert when plugin gets muted for some reason... (i am autorefreshing between 6 to 9 windows at the same time with win10 computers (64 bit systems). I have less issues with sound quitting to work with my win8 laptop thats only auto refreshing 3 windows at the time. with that laptop, sound quits working only once a day on avg.) (I may be wrong but I suspect that when I receive many sound alerts at the same time, from a bunch of windows im auto refreshing, this causes the sound alerts to quit working.) ps. I love this plugin and am extremely grateful for you for providing this useful tool. this is the only one i have found with sound alerts (a game changer!)

  • (2020-08-08, v:7.1.8) IV Semestre Medicina - UCLA: No suena
    Tengo mucho tiempo utilizando esta excelente extension. Pero desde los primeros dias de agosto de este año, ha venido presentando fallas. Utilizo esta extension, para determinar cuando una pagina cambia de contenido. Para ello, incluyo en las casillas, algunas palabras que pudiera encontrar. Al actualizarse, si encuentra algun cambio, comenzaba a sonar. Pero lo cierto es que ultimamente no hace eso bien. En ocasiones suena, pero en otras ocasiones no lo hace. Tambien sucede que, al pasar el intervalo de actualizaci{on, no actualiza la pagina, aunque el cronometro comienza desde cero (pero sin actualizarse la pagina web). Agradeceria mucho su ayuda, pues considero que es una extension muy util.
