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 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.

  • (2022-05-13) Zbigniew Parzych: Reloads only once and stops. Timer works, but no reload.
  • (2022-04-20) nick jones: This should have been a good extension but it is not. This is because it applies the refresh to all tabs. I have gone back to using Auto Refresh Plus Old Version as it does not need to see page data and is tab specific. Now I remember why I stopped using Auto Refresh Plus Old Version. This is a very sneaky program as it does not to read data until you do the refresh.....STAY AWAY. The hunt for a proper refresh extension continues. Nick
  • (2022-04-14) TnF TnF: Hello. When your tab reloaded extension is active if I maximize or even resize a window to get it bigger it will reload the page even though tab reloaded is not enabled to that or any tab. Please fix it, it’s really annoying.
  • (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
  • (2021-09-19) Håkan Nalén: This works! It can reload different tabs with specific webpages in same browser session. The button in top right has a missleading text. It should have a 0 to the left and a 1 to the right.
  • (2021-09-13) Matthew Stiatti: Does not properly manage the "Confirm Form Resubmission" popup in the sense that it prevents it from appearing but the way it manages it is not transparent to the server therefore the server resets the session and requires a new login.
  • (2021-09-12) Prashoon Bhattacharjee: Super helpful extension!! 💯
  • (2021-08-27) Mike: i installed it, to prevent certain pages to auto-refresh, but didn't work at all. In fact i set the timer to 1 day for 3 pages, but all of them proceed to refresh as they normally would. Also too many options confuses the average user. It would be nicer to to put one-click options such as stop-auto refresh permantly. One-click options that are currently exists do not seem to function properly such as "do not reload if tab is active". I understand the effort to create such an open-source extension and that many people use it differently than i am, but i can't put more stars just because it got created by skilled people that put a lot of time to it, if it doesnt work as it should or intended.
  • (2021-07-26) md sharif hossain: I was looking for it! And it's match my all requirements.
  • (2021-07-25) Chris Vienna: The extension does what it says, but it adds 4 or 5 listings to the top of every google.com search labeled as "ad". This is not in their descriptions so which other spyware or redirecting could this be doing? Make sure to disable it when not in use.
  • (2021-07-18) Jack Wang: Great one!
  • (2021-07-18) Md. Ashrafull Hossain: Superb.
  • (2021-05-29) Hatsune Miku: Broken as of 28/05/21 Seems to randomly turn off.
  • (2021-05-21) Clyde Barratt: Best page refresher
  • (2021-04-25) Muhammad Adnan: This is a good step as I m freelancer at fiverr plateform and this really keeps me online by reloading my tab.
  • (2021-04-09) Jacob Hanson: Very nicely written extension. Had just the features I was looking for, without being too complicated. Thanks!
  • (2021-03-12) Juliana Alves Neves: Easy to use, it is great!
  • (2021-03-11) Beema Rani: nice
  • (2021-01-25) Panos: + Requires only the necessary permissions. + Resets its timer when I refresh the tab or visit a link on the tab + Provides a lot of functionality - It doesn't offer one-click presets - It doesn't show its countdown timer which would help me figure out on which tabs it's enabled.
  • (2020-11-18) S Y: Bug report: "Do not reload if tab is active" is enabled, but the tba is still reloaded automatically. Feature request: allow count down time to show on the plugin's icon
  • (2020-11-17) Siva Ram: Very useful for multi tasking users. :) customized support is very advantage and time saving.
  • (2020-11-12) stone justin: 好用
  • (2020-10-28) Michael Piman: Works great, but shouldn't there be an option to display a timer? How else do I know exactly how long until refresh?
  • (2020-10-27) John Holland: wonderful and exactly as advertised however it doesn't count the number of times it's reloaded the page. Here's a short script to do that: ```javascript let rs = parseInt(localStorage.getItem('reloadedCount')) let reloadCount = isNaN(rs) ? 0 : rs reloadCount++ localStorage.setItem("reloadedCount", reloadCount.toString()) console.log("reloaded " + reloadCount) ``` (omit ```, md just habit) to reset the count: localStorage.setItem("reloadedCount", 0)
  • (2020-08-07) Conrad Knight: Do not install! It does what it says, but it also contains malware that randomly opens ads in new tabs.
  • (2020-07-27) Gin Mador: smart
  • (2020-04-05) eZ pZ: Wish more developers were like this... thank you!
  • (2020-03-26) Brian Wu: 实用
  • (2020-03-21) Ananya Gupta: This tab refresh Chrome Extension is PERFECT! THANK YOU! I needed an extension that refreshed a Chrome tab on the basis of the Tab itself and not the url in the tab. Other extensions refresh the tabs on the basis of URL which means that every tab that has the url open will all refresh. You have solved my issue perfectly.
  • (2020-03-21) Rad Khi: very great nice and perfect ! tnx !
  • (2019-12-26) Lawrence Barnes: Installation is fast and easy. It does exactly what I need it to do (reload a tab on a periodic basis) without forcing me through an options tree.
  • (2019-11-07) Dave H: Simply works as advertised. One of (extremely) few extensions that doesn't require god-tier permissions to run.
  • (2019-10-19) Алексей Мурашов: Расширения для заработка! https://zarabotok-n.wixsite.com/masonry-layout-ru
  • (2019-09-03) Trần Đức Ngọc: Free and very useful.Thank you a bunch
  • (2019-07-18) Greg Smith: Exceptional Chrome extension!! Did exactly what I needed to do (behaved like a CRON job with a GUI toolbar UI), and did not include all of these crazy permissions like changing every file attached to my browser. Great find, thanks Reddit!
