The quickest way to refresh a webpage on Google Chrome for mobile is to swipe down on the page, and then release when you see the circular “reload” symbol. like this:
But wait, there’s more. Only if you are using Chrome for iOS. I checked this on the Chrome for Android on my Nexus 4 and the additional functions did not show up.
So, basically, when you pull down a page in Chrome for iPhone, you’ll see couple of additional icons next to the ‘RELOAD’ icon. Pull and drag to the left to open a new tab. Drag to the right to close the active tab.
Isn’t that cool!
