Web developers and testers usually get it quite rough when designing and scripting webpages for schools, companies, and even personal projects. The development cycle is always time-consuming and disheartening especially when the focus is largely on the testing side. As a way of bringing the focus back to the development side for web architects, Browser Refresh, a utility which helps refresh browsers from any application or work-space, assists web developers and other users perform refresh tasks easily with the press of a hotkey. Now with this nice, little, and portable utility, you can work side-by-side with code editors such as Sublime Text and Notepad++ together with your preferred browser(s), be it with one monitor or multiple monitors connected. It also supports “hard-refreshing” for any (or all) of the supported browsers if you’re working with server-side webpages/scripts which may require cache-clearing from time to time.
Now with Browser Refresh, your browser is one hotkey away, giving you all the time you need to write and test features as you preview the changes within your browser(s) with the press of a hotkey. Hope this tool will push you one or more steps further in your development cycle and developer life too. Have fun with it as newer releases come your way!
Browser Refresh is not dependent on DeskJS at all. They’re both different applications but built with the same developer.
