You can define “reloadPreHook” and “reploadPostHook” commands.

" default is not setting.
" 1. execute "reloadPreHook" command. -> 2. refresh browser.
let g:reloadPreHook = "sh"

" 1. refresh browser. ->  2. execute "reloadPostHook" command.
let g:reloadPostHook = "sh"

I recommend that you use along with the vimproc.vim. Because hook commands to be performed asynchronously.
