This may come a little late; but, I recently had a similar need. Hope it helps anyone else.

I am running the script below in Powershell to rotate through tabs in a Chrome browser (just change the "AppActivate" piece for your browser), for a system monitor setup. Hope it helps...

while(1 -eq 1){
  $wshell=New-Object -ComObject wscript.shell;
  $wshell.AppActivate('Google Chrome');
  Sleep 5;

Internet Explorer does not have this functionality built in or a native add on that could provide it.

If you have to use Internet Explorer you could use AutoHotKey and create a script like the one below to perform an automatic toggle between tabs every second.

Pwb :=  ComObjCreate("InternetExplorer.Application")
Pwb.Navigate("Tab2URL", 2048)
Pwb.Navigate("Tab3URL", 2048)
Pwb.Navigate("Tab4URL", 2048)   

Loop 10
    Send, ^{tab}
    Sleep, (1000)

^!p::Pause  ; Press Ctrl+Alt+P to pause. Press it again to resume.

If you are allowed to use Firefox than the easier option is to use an extension called Tab Slideshow that will cycle through each tab after a set amount of time. I believe this extension is also available on Chrome.

We use a handy tool called "Vue Pilot" that does what you want. You can create rotation lists that are synchronised between all your screens and manage them from an online interface.

We run a number of large screens around our office using it.

We are developing a product that you might find useful for this. It's called Screensaver Ninja and it's a screensaver that displays several web pages one after the other. It'll be available for both Windows and Mac.

We don't believe using a full screen web browser is an adequate solution for an office/public dashboard, we wrote a blog post about it here: https://screensaver.ninja/2015/02/18/not-just-full-screen-browser/

Screensaver Ninja maintains independent sessions from your browser and its feature rich configuration tool allows you to log in into those pages that require that:
