How to keep web page tabs from reloading every time I open them?

    I don't know if this is something specific to Chrome, or if it happens in other browsers and there might be a way to turn off the option or something.

    It happens each time I am viewing something in a browser tab, say half way down a page of an article, and I switch apps by pressing the bottom right button that enables you to choose between apps. Let's say I want to use my calculator app for a second. So I do that, and then when I go back to the app tab with the web browser page, it automatically starts to reload or refresh. I don't want it to do that. Just sitting right where I left it would be great.

    Is there a way to get this option?

  2. Chrome on my Turbo 2 under 6.0.1 ...

    When switching tasks through the previous apps window the Chrome pagfe postion I had is retained.

    I cannot duplicate the problem.

    Are you using the latest version of Chrome?

    Does this happen with all web pages or just some of them? Can you provide the URL of a page there it happens?

    Byea I just checked and I have the latest update. It happens on every single page. Doesn't matter what it is.

    If I tap my tabs button and pick from any tab in the list right now, that page will automatically reload.

    I'm on 4.4.2.
