Auto Reload extension for Vivaldi

Auto Reload Stoppwatch

Does what it says and reloads tabs / pages in intervals until you hit the stop button for that page.

  • The interval can be set individually for each page.
  • You can choose any interval you want as default interval.
  • Unloads if the last tab was set to “stop” to free up resources.

Name: Auto-Reload.crx

To install you need to:

  • Download it it “save as” to avoid the ‘CRX_REQUIRED_PROOF_MISSING’ warning
  • Verify the checksum
  • Unzip it
  • (optionally rename to .zip if your unzipper doesn’t recognize .crx as .zip)
  • Look into the source to see that it is clean (optional, but recommended)
  • Open vivaldi://extensions and switch to developer mode
  • Click the “load unpacked” button
  • Navigate to the folder where you have unzipped it
  • Click “OK”


  • Download it it “save as” to avoid the ‘CRX_REQUIRED_PROOF_MISSING’ warning
  • Verify the checksum
  • Open vivaldi://extensions and switch to developer mode
  • drag’n’drop the file to the window (not recommended, because it is too easy to install malicious stuff this way, see disclaimer.)


I am no experienced coder and you have now be warned about it, so USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!

Other than that: I tried to check for all cases and linted the code, but I can not guarantee that it e.g. doesn’t clash with other extensions or work as expected with the browser, doesn’t delete all data on your drive or even work at all on your machine.

PS: I totally forgot to…

  • put malware into the extension
  • put a coin miner into the extension
  • rewrite all links to amazon and ebay to affiliate links
  • connect to external servers to pull other stuff in later
  • do any logging of any kind
  • do other nasty stuff that I have seen several times while checking extensions from the chrome web store
