Why Do Chrome and Other Browsers Reload Pages on Android?


    There have been countless times with both Google Chrome, and Firefox where my pages reload at seemingly random. If I switch through tabs, open another app, or just let my phone idle, one of my tabs is bound to reload when I go back to it. So why is your browser reloading a page when you’ve already loaded all of it previously?

    This actually has to do with how Android is designed in general, which I’ll get to in just a bit. Since the problem here is Android itself, there isn’t a single fix, as much as there are workarounds for the issue. After I explain what Android is doing to your browser, and why, I’ll cover how you can work around it.
