Chrome-Stats extension

Monitors source files on a page. Reloads the page or just the changed stylesheet when source files are updated.

Monitors included scripts, stylesheets and/or frames on a page for changes using configurable rules. Reloads the entire page or just the source file that was changed.

Not sure why your page is not reloading? — Debug your rules by navigating to edge://extensions, find the Live Reload extension in the list, click "background page", visit the "Console" tab and monitor "All levels".

Due to security restrictions in web extensions, files served using the file system (file://...) cannot be monitored. A quick and easy workaround is to serve local files over http. See
