Very often it happens to monitor a web page which can be sports results, real time news or company control web pages with constantly updated lists.
I remember, regarding the latter case, when I worked in a company that had a big screen in which any alarms or alerts of malfunctions on the servers and on the network appeared.
To show all the important web pages with the graphical data and statistics that were needed, the browser was opened 4 times and the windows were arranged side by side.
Probably, if the administrators of those IT services today read this article they would find a more functional method of rotating web pages on a regular basis.

Basically, when you want keep multiple websites open simultaneously, check them regularly and do it that update automatically (autorefresh), you can use specific extensions with Chrome and Firefox browsers.

The user therefore does not need to interact with the page manually to retrieve updated information if it automatically reloads at pre-established frequencies.

With Google Chrome you can install an extension called Revolver which helps users see more websites passively. The extension can automatically scroll through all open tabs at regular intervals so that each tab is shown in the web browser for a set period of time. This type of use of the browser to browse the internet was created for the use of Google Chrome in fullscreen on the screen or on a TV, where the dynamic rotation of web content, in real time. Optionally, if the website to be monitored does not update itself at each change, you can set theautorefresh which becomes very useful for those sites whose session expires after a certain period of time.

After installing the extension the automatic rotation and update for all open tabs it is interspersed every ten seconds and the content of the active page is reloaded each time. This behavior can be changed in the extension options. The interval can be changed from 10 seconds to another time period and page autoreload can be disabled. The function is started and stopped by pressing the Revolver icon in the Google Chrome address bar.

Another Chrome extension to do theautorefresh of internet sites is Easy Auto-Refresh. The latter is really easy to use, just give a period of time in seconds or minutes for the web page to reload. It can also be said to stop autorefresh automatically when a certain text appears on the page.

Su Firefox you can install a similar extension that does theautorefresh of a web page.
Tab Auto Refresh install a new menu from which you can enable automatic reload of the web page. By clicking on "Custom", a small window opens in which you can enter the desired auto-reload time in minutes and seconds and you can set this refresh for all the open tabs or for just one.
Another Firefox extension is Auto Reload which allows you to decide how often an open web page must reload and update itself with autorefresh.

Finally, tab reloader for Chrome and Firefox, released in 2022, it is one of the best solutions to automatically refreshare web pages and sites, with many options to customize tab loading and times.
