    Why don't the work? I've tried dolphin add on here on an S4, a nexus 4, 5 and 7 (2013 edition), a Galaxy Tab, a HTC One M7 and M8.... Can you give more detail? – RossC Sep 9 '14 at 11:06
  • it seems that the addon only works if the browser is open, when you open another app or wait 30 min without opening the browser again it stops realoading the webpage. – skallado Sep 10 '14 at 8:47

    Android might be killing the browser after a long time of inactivity... I don't know how to work around that to refresh a website with any of those tools. – RossC Sep 10 '14 at 10:52
