What is Page Refresher?

"Page Refresher" is a Chrome extension that provides unique, productivity-boosting features. It allows users to set up automatic reloads for individual tabs at five customizable intervals, displayed in a comprehensive refresh info table. Additionally, it offers the ability to bypass local cache on selected tabs, block automatic or meta refreshes per tab, and conveniently control these settings via a context menu. However, caution is advised to avoid excessive reloads which might result in restricted site access.

Better page refresher
by Joshua Little Joshua Little, 2022-08-19

Great app - but sometimes it doesn't work. Worked great for a couple months, but then all of a sudden a couple times per week it just won't work. A chromebook restart fixes it, although once I had to reinstall it. Otherwise, nifty extension.
