    I recently upgraded to a Nexus 6 from a Samsung S4. Love the new phone. However, to refresh a page now in the Chrome browser I believe it is, it takes two buttons instead of one as you have to hit a "..." or similar key to pull up more options, then the refresh button is in those options. I'm looking for a browser that has the refresh button right there on the main page like they've been on desktop browsers for so long so I can refresh a page by pressing just one button. I downloaded Firefox and it too is missing an easy refresh button.

    Any suggestions? Thanks!

    In Chrome, to refresh you simply swipe down on the open tab.

    Thanks Leanne, I'll check it out. Slug, that may work sometimes, but many times it does not. It won't refresh no matter how many times I swipe down on various forums. Also won't work on finance.yahoo.com (although I got the app for that, and the app DOES refresh when I swipe down). Is there some option maybe that I need to turn on?

    Thanks!
