Auto Reload/Refresh in Firefox with ReloadEvery Extension!

Too many reasons to list for an auto reload feature in a browser: being ready for when tickets go on sale, following real time blog posts of live events (like Macworld), when playing a browser based, turned based game, inflating stats, the list goes on.

So unless you prefer getting the drinking bird on the F5 button, the ReloadEvery Firefox extension by Jaap Haitsma is your best bet.

Installation is the same as every other addon for Firefox: just hit the Install Now button and follow the directions.

Usage is just as easy. Once installed and your browser's restarted, you can right click on any page you want, hover over ReloadEvery> and you can enable and disable it, and choose the interval between reloads. You can even let the extension go while visiting other sites on other tabs.

Get more bang for your buck. Check out the Tab Mix Plus extension... one of its options is a "Reload tab every..."

Default options are 5s, 15s, 30s, 1m, 2m, 5m, 15m, and 30m, but there's also a custom option defined in minutes and seconds.

Get more bang for your buck. Try the "Tab Mix Plus" extension. It has "reload tab every" as just one of its standard options.

Default values are 5s, 15s, 30s, 1m, 2m, 5m, 15m, and 30m, but it also has a custom option, defined in m/s.

This plugin doesn't work on most webpages that I need it to work on. Any page that is using macromedia flash on it will not reload.
