I was inspired by some plugins which were not suited for my needs. So I developed that plugin which can be used by Chromium users and also Firefox users.

The extension allows you to refresh a Tab (URL) periodically and automatically. It can also monitor page content and if specific text on the page either appears or disappears notify you using browser notification with sound (if wished).

In monitor mode, the extension stop refreshing when it find (or loss) a key strings.

Time Intervals

To refresh a page, Time interval can be fixed or random with default value.

We can also define an Error interval which override Time interval and only used to refresh a Tab after an error occurs (404, 408 and 5xx).

Works pretty well, until the notification starts firing. How do you stop the notification?
