Android users had come up with another solution when they experience that the pages on their Chrome do not load and that is by clearing its cache. Constantly. The page is reloading, even though you were just on it minutes ago. So why is your browser reloading a page when you’ve already loaded all of it previously? It just froze for me right here.

I wasn't able to personally duplicate the bug on any of the phones I use regularly. Consistently able to trigger it by going to a certain AOSP source code page. Its up to you! WebView, the component of Android that renders web pages inside apps (like login screens), is updated through the Play Store. Let’s be honest… The ubiquity of mobile devices these days – especially Android devices which account for almost 90% of all mobile devices worldwide –…. HELP. Jade, yes Opera Mini does automatically reset tabs that it thinks are inactive (just like Dolphin mini, and all other 11 browsers I’ve tried). You’ve probably noticed that even if you’re only on your browser tabs can reload, and that’s usually because you have a few running at once that Android decides to “close” without telling you. — … If more people complained about this it would actually probably be fixed but.. Has anyone tried reporting this to the vendors? this is a nasty feature added by Android and they do not correct it, Opera sure does reload tabs.
Since the problem here is Android itself, there isn’t a single fix, as much as there are workarounds for the issue. Most reports follow the same pattern: a person tries to view a web page inside an app (as opposed to in a Chrome Custom Tab or a full web browser), the page freezes, and eventually the application displaying the page becomes unresponsive. There are a lot of times when I’ll be writing a note (or what have you) from my browser into a note program so I’ll be going back and forth when suddenly all my tabs are closed and I’m back to the main page like I opened my browser for the first time. The easiest, and most common way to do that is with task killers and cache cleaners. And in each of those SIX TIMES, I was in the middle of posting the same freaking message, but found myself having to do some fact checking on another site. Now my phone has 6GB memory and 3 G is always empty and the storage is 128G and a fast CPU, much more modern than the CPU in 2014, but with nearly every browser the pages are restarted when i switch to other apps. Google apparently put it there to annoy everyone. Affiliate Disclosure: As an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases from Amazon.com.
