    Automatic interval based page reloading.

    Change Log:



  1. David says:

    Where can I configure the interval for the reload?
    Currently, it seems quite too often…

  2. I am working on supporting configuration. Chrome’s extension sub-system isn’t finished yet and the facilities for configuration support are not all in place yet.

  3. wallace530 says:

    How long reload once?

  4. @wallace530: what do you mean? If you are asking about the interval between reload, it is currently set at 30secs. You can very easily change this value in the code if you need to.

  5. TheSamFrom1984 says:

    Awesome, and very neat integration.

  6. BloodyT says:

    Perhaps when it re-loads, the tab could also flash if there has been any updates to the webpage (check if filesize is different)

  7. Billie says:

    I keep getting this error: Invalid value for ‘permissions[0].

    What do I need to do so I can install it?

  8. davv says:

    good idea bloodyt

    this or a good ‘ol hash could do the trick.

    duno if the chrome api will allow to make tab “flash” though

  9. Version 5 is now available on my web site: this version allows configuring the reload interval.

  10. howar31 says:

    I think 30 secs minimum is too big for me.
    Could you adjust the minimum to about 5 secs?
    Sometimes I need to refresh the page frequently.

    By the way, put the newest version of your plugin on this website is much better. ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. @howar31: If you require <30secs, you are more than welcome to edit the code: 30secs is a sensible value I believe.

    I am not putting the latest version of my extensions on this site anymore – Google is coming out with their own gallery + this site isn't very "developer friendly"…

  12. howar31 says:

    Oh I see.
    Thanks for replying
    I like this extension very much! ๐Ÿ˜€

  13. norz says:

    the ChromeReload extension v. 0.1.1 found on the chrome extensions official site allows to set a reload interval between 5 seconds to 30 minutes.

  14. Dante says:

    How do you edit the code? New to chrome here.

  15. P:nz says:

    The screen gets blank during reload. Is it possible to keep the current page while loading the updated page in the background until it is complete and then “snap” to the new page at once. I have never seen a “reload-plugin” do this. A challenge? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  16. Kilroy says:

    It’s ok and simple for quick use but I think that perhaps ChromeReload is probably closer to what people might be looking for with more added control of times for reloads.

  17. I am not maintaining the extension on this site anymore: for an updated (and much cooler version ;-), please see the Google Chrome Extension Gallery @

  18. lehmapuki says:

    i wonder who’s the idiot that create this such an rubbish application

  19. Good extension, but needs to allow the user customize the reload interval.
