Simple and Functional

Easy install, and works. Refreshes tabs as advertised, time is configurable and can be used on multiple tabs with different time settings for each.
The hardest part was finding the little icon on the toolbar the first time - it’s right there just didn’t notice it at first.

Definitely a worth while AR

So ever since the implimentations of extensions for Safari I was looking for a really good Auto Refresher to use on Safari instead of chrome since Chrome sort of wasnt too optimized for somewhat older Macs and cuasing slight bottle neck concerns however this one definitely fits the bill only thing stoping it from getting that 5th star from me is the fact that it doesnt have an option for 3sec intervals which i'd like to hope they can update eventually however definitely enjoying it otherwise

Photo_Genesis, thanks for your review! Now that you have an option for up to 1sec intervals, would you consider updating your review/rating? Thanks so much!

This is exactly what I was looking for! Though what would be really great is to be able to choose refresh interval because as a web designer this is a super handy tool and to be able to set different timers for refresh would be really cool! Thank you for making this app <3

Thanks for the review! In the most recent update, I’ve added a slider for a custom refresh interval. Let me know if there are any other features you would like to see by emailing
