Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

We have to admit, were scratching our heads with this one. Refresh is supposed to let you set refresh frequencies to save you the trouble of manually refresh a Web page. But it didn't work at all for us during testing.

The interface consists of a tiny pop-up window where users can choose from four preset refresh frequencies, ranging from five seconds to one minute. You can't customize it with your own frequency. Other than that, there's an on/off button, a Help button and a Contact button. First, we clicked on the Contact button and nothing happened. Then, we clicked on the Help button and nothing happened. When we selected each of the preset frequencies, nothing happened. Our Web page never refreshed.

Don't bother with this program; you're better off just clicking your IEs built-in refresh button. This program may be free, but its definitely not worth your time.
