Auto IE Refresher 1.10

This Internet Explorer extension automatically refreshes Internet Explorer browser windows for you at a preset time or custom value
Auto IE Refresher is an extension for Internet Explorer that provides you with the possibility to automatically refresh one or more web pages. This can be a useful tool when you frequently need to check a webpage for changes.

Toolbar integration

In order to use the extension you need to open Internet Explorer after the installation and to enable the extension. The extension adds a new toolbar to the top side of the browser window and on every opened tab.

Choose between preset time intervals or specify a custom value

The toolbar enables you to set a time interval for the page to automatically refresh by simply clicking on it and selecting a preset. Auto IE Refresher includes eight preset intervals but also allows you to enter your own preference if the presets are not suitable.

You can set different time intervals on every opened tab or window in order to refresh only the web pages that you want to check. If you need to monitor a news website you can set the refresh interval and check the webpage from time to time to see the changes. It is a useful addition to your browser when you are monitoring the stock market or sport information.

Where it falls short

The downside of this tool is that the toolbar occupies the space that was previously used for the webpage and decreases visibility on all the opened tabs, even on the ones that do not require automatic reloading. Closing the toolbar from a tab means to disable the extension on all the tabs so there is no way to avoid this impediment.

Conclusion

Auto IE Refresher is a good tool for the users that need to frequently reload web pages. If this function is more important to you than the loss of window space you can use it in your daily browsing activity.
