Though it lacks extras, this handy tool automatically reloads the current page you are browsing, at regular intervals. Auto URL Refresher sports a simple interface consisting of text boxes and a few buttons that are very easy to understand. The program can refresh up to nine Web pages and you can easily customize the refresh rate intervals. We liked that the program automatically launched each URL in separate Internet Explorer windows after we hit the Start button, though opening each page was a bit slow during our tests.
Settings are saved in an INI file that also maintains a log of refreshed Web pages. It's important to note that closing the program also closes the opened Web pages. Despite its short 90-use trial and the general lack of extra features, any user wanting to keep up with dynamic Web sites such as auctions and game scoreboards will find this program helpful.
Use Auto URL Refresher to refresh web pages either randomly or at selected intervals enabling you to keep an eye on fast changing eBay auctions, stock market tickers, sports events, or any other dynamically changing web pages without having to manually click the refresh button in your browser repeatedly. Refresh up to 9 different URLs at random or at set intervals having them open in their own windows. Refresh mode: random or fixed intervals. Configurable refresh intervals between 10-3.600 seconds. Settings are saved automatically. Automatic termination when the preset refresh limit is reached. Detailed System Log. Plus: one EXE program starting capability. No need to install/reinstall.
Version 2.0 may include unspecified updates, enhancements, or bug fixes.
