editor's review




Auto refresh for Chrome is a handy and efficient browser extension that automates the refreshing of pages inside Chrome at a customizable time interval.

Such a solution is fit for when you need to check a webpage regularly; for instance, if you want to verify the score of a football match or the results of a lottery game, you can use Auto refresh for Chrome to perform a check automatically without you lifting a finger.

Using it, you’ll no longer have to press F5 several times, which means you’ll be saved a great deal of effort, especially if you need to process a lot of pages.

Accommodating it on your system is very easy; simply drag and drop the CRX file onto the Extensions section of your Chrome browser and agree to the installation in order to get things started.

The extension makes you aware of its presence by a little icon located next to the Bookmark button inside the URL address section. A small control panel becomes available if you right-click it, allowing you to access the Options section, where you can configure the auto-refresh interval.

The default period is 10 seconds, but you can change it to 30 or 45 seconds or 1 minute. It would have been great if the add-on offered you the possibility to set a custom interval, but the discomfort that comes from this is minor.

Considering all of the above, Auto refresh for Chrome seems like a good addition to your browser, saving you the tedious effort of pressing the F5 key each time you need to refresh a webpage.
