Does Chrome have an auto-reload option (per tab) ?

EG, I want to go to a website, & go to a page, & have Chrome auto-refresh that tab say - every 5 minutes...
 
I can open other tabs - & will not auto-refresh...
 
Is this available ?

there is possible a plugin or extension available for that. a simple google search for "chrome auto-refresh plugin extension" gave me this on the first page:

I have a solution inspired by a Dual View "plugin" found at http://www.chromeplugins.org/plugins/google-chrome-dual-view/
 
Just create a bookmark with the following code as the URL:
javascript:
timeout=prompt("Set timeout [s]");
current=location.href;
if(timeout>0)
setTimeout('reload()',1000*timeout);
else
location.replace(current);
function reload(){
setTimeout('reload()',1000*timeout);
fr4me='<frameset cols=\'*\'>\n<frame src=\''+current+'\'/>';
fr4me+='</frameset>';
with(document){write(fr4me);void(close())};
}
 
Click the bookmark with the tab you want to auto-reload active.
Set the time interval (in seconds) or set it to zero to cancel auto-reload.

Hi everyone,

As this question was asked in 2009 and has been best answered and this extension seems to be working for you guys, I am going to close this thread.

+hypnoguy if you are still looking for an extension, please open a new thread.

Thanks!
