Image from store Tab Reloader (page auto refresh)
Description from store Tab reloader provides a toolbar panel to perform infinite reloading jobs on individual tabs. You can define a custom period with a random variation for each tab. Tab reloading jobs can be disabled or enabled through the toolbar panel. Preview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zAhQlorZZTc Features: 1. Define variable (random) reloading times with a predefined range 2. Define whether reloading occurs when a tab is active or not 3. Restores reloading jobs after a restart (session manager) 4. Reload tabs from the context menu over tab element (see screenshot) 5. Optionally displays the remaining time of the next reloading on the badge area 6. See the list of all tabs with active reloading jobs in the browser action's popup 7. Set custom rules to start reloading a tab when URL or hostname matches. 8. Optionally move to the bottom of a tab after reloading occurs to read the new content 9. Reload all tabs in the current window or all browser windows 10. Reload local files (file://) 11. Optionally bypass form submissions 12. Define a policy that prevents reloading based on the time (date) and URL 13. Run custom JavaScript code on each reload. 14. Reload only a few times and then stop. 15. Reload discarded tabs in the current window or all windows 16. Supports setting reloading jobs of all selected tabs at once To disable an already activated tab, please make sure to switch to the tab first, then open the toolbar button and disable the job. Note that if you are closing the tab, there is no need to disable the job. The job will be disabled automatically after an active tab gets closed. As of version 0.2.7, you can now ask the extension to automatically set new reloading jobs for you based on the "Custom JSON" object. If the option is checked and the new page has a matching hostname, the extension will load the custom reloading job from the JSON and applies to the tab. Check the options and FAQs pages for more info. As of version 0.2.9, 1 you can define a policy that prevents reloading based on the time (date) and URL. Both time and URL keys accept regular expressions to prevent reloading. With the policies you can, for instance, prevent reloading on a specific page of a domain or prevent reloading at specific hours of a day.

  • (2023-05-02) josh wanner: Thought this was going to be exactly what I needed, but the main feature I was searching for is currently not working. "Do not reload if tab is active" - Is there a way to make this work?
  • (2023-03-26) Paul P.: Казалось бы пустяк, а насколько удобное расширение. Странно, что Google сам не включил подобный функционал. А то закрыть все/текущую вкладку есть, а про перезагрузку не подумали. Автору респект!
  • (2023-03-24) Mauricio Meza: No me funciona para 10 segundos, ni con 20, lo minimo es 30, aunque dice que puedes poner los segundos no funciona, solo los presets
  • (2023-03-22) Israel Pastor: The last update seems to have broken the extension. It does not update websites correctly any more.
  • (2023-03-05) Vzajemna: This saved me so much time. The best auto reload plugin so far
  • (2023-02-27) Nick S.: Works as advertised. Clean interface; simple but highly effective.
  • (2023-02-06) Faran Tariq: Works fine in the start but after some time pages donot reload at all. USELESS!
  • (2022-11-15) Amir Mohammad: great
  • (2022-11-08) SM Shahidul Islam: good
  • (2022-11-01) Shyam Borhade: Sound is not working other is ok👍
  • (2022-10-24) Bill Strebel: Worked fine for a while but now keeps turning off and pages do not reload. Useless now.
  • (2022-10-22) Keith S: totally stopped working a few days ago
  • (2022-10-16) Anka Sibgatullina: Последние месяцы перестал работать звук, при изменении содержимого страницы. Раньше работал, а потом просто перестал. Всё включено, галочка стоит, но звука. Звук в само браузере и на сайте тоже включён.
  • (2022-09-25) Richard Olson: Just stops working out of nowhere randomly.
  • (2022-09-25) Design Master Md.Mansur Ali: very nice
  • (2022-09-15) Ron Moses: There are pros and cons, but on balance I'm recommending it. On the downside, the interface is very unpolished compared to other refresh extensions. Functional, yes, but not a joy to use. Having the count of timed tabs on the icon is an interesting idea, but I really need to see a countdown on my tabs. I know I can click it, but this is pretty standard behavior in the category. I do like that it maintains my timers after a restart. That's key for me, and goes a long way towards forgiving all the rest of it. Overall, it's not the best I've used, but it's very good and I hope the developer continues to polish things a bit.
  • (2022-09-08) Logo Zone: Great app
  • (2022-08-22) Johan Gustavsson: I love this extension, the only thing I miss would be a count-down timer on the toolbar button itself, forr a quick view of the remaing time... Now I have to click on the button to see it...
  • (2022-08-13) Alan López: no me da la opción de emitir sonido si la pagina cambia
  • (2022-08-04) Marcos Alves: It was working great until yesterday, it was reloading the tab I needed every 15 seconds, but today (04/08/2022) the timer goes to 1 minute and i'm not even sure if it's properly reloading.
  • (2022-08-04) Spiroz Gavs: после обновления не работает.. как так можно выпускать релизы.. походу вообще не тестировали...
  • (2022-07-24) Alex Qxi: Worked well until April, since then flopped and caused me more trouble with not being reliable than if I didn't use it at all.
  • (2022-07-18) דורון ארביב: doesn't always work. and when the primary goal of the extention is to do auto reload, that's basically the whole point....two stars rather than one because when it works, it exactly what i needed. but i can't rely on it, so i'm looking for a different solution .
  • (2022-07-12) Glas Auge: Has many fine-tuning options, even script injection, which allows a professional use of it
  • (2022-03-02) John Diggsfelt: While useful this stops working periodically with no explanation. When working it's fine but it's been hit or miss in my experiences.
  • (2022-03-02) Eamon Peter: easy to use, always working!!
  • (2022-02-07) Tony Liu: really cool extension, we use it to auto reload google slides to show messages on hallway TVs.
  • (2022-01-28) Тимур Абилов: После обновления работает как попало. Забывает и путает вкладки между запусками.
  • (2022-01-26) XK XK: Latest update removed the ability to reload all tabs. Uninstalling and finding something else.
  • (2022-01-26) Amanda Bischof: Used to love this extension but since the latest update it does not function unless the almost-full screen settings page is open in the tab I need reloading, which defeats the purpose of the extension. The previous version was a 5, but now is a 0, and I am searching for other extensions to replace this one.
  • (2022-01-25) Angie Craig: I need it to refresh the page every 10 seconds, and I have it set to do that, but it is only refreshing every 30 seconds. It counts down the 10 seconds but does not refresh the page until after 30 seconds. This worked fine until the update yesterday.
  • (2022-01-24) Elizabeth Phelps: This was amazing but the update today set the minimum timer to 10 seconds, which removes all utility for me. So it was previously a 5. For what I need it for, it's a zero.
  • (2021-12-22) Rohit Moond: THANK YOU !! :)
  • (2021-11-27) F FEPA: ✅Ligero ✅Open source ✅Seguro de usar ✅Más opciones que las demás extensiones junto a una interfaz completa. ✅Se pueden refrescar pestañas nativas (aunque no se pueden guardar tras el reinicio) ❌No puede guardar la configuracion refresh sobre sitios como brave:rewards (partes nativas del navegador)
  • (2021-11-22) vamsi krishna Sighakolli: The reloader gets disabled after sometime when working with chrome through remote desktop, Very surprisingly the badge counter shows the tab count even though the reloader gets auto disabled by itself!
  • (2021-11-20) aaron n: The only reloader i have found that doesn't require the “read and change all your data on the websites you visit” permission.
  • (2021-11-13) Rykotic: Works great! Thank you.
  • (2021-09-27) Alexander Popov: Please, add a sync via Google Drive and/or Dropbox, something else.
  • (2021-09-23) Thomas H: only did a few of the things advertised
