Add Pull-To-Refresh to Mac OS X in Chrome & Safari
iOS popularized the pull-to-refresh gesture, where pulling down and releasing on browser and app windows causes them to refresh their contents. With the help of a browser extension, we can bring the same pull to refresh feature to Mac OS X 10.7 in either the Chrome or Safari web browsers:
Installation is just a matter of clicking on the appropriate browser extension and opening a new browser window, which it will then be active in. The pull to refresh extension works best with trackpads and a two-fingered pull down, you will see a small black message box appear in the browser window indicating the refresh will occur if the pull is released.
You can add this to the list of things to make Mac OS X more like iOS, but I’d wager that future versions of browsers will probably include this feature, which some Mac apps already support.
Update: The Safari extension currently requires an Apple Developer Certificate to build and install, you can use the pre-built version posted in the comments at your own risk, or wait for the developer to release a bundled version. In the meantime, the Chrome extension is still easy to install.
