[Q] Getting web authenticated wifi to stick without reauthenticating

Howdy all. I have a wifi at home which works with web authentication i.e. you connect your phone to wifi and on opening a browser, it redirects you to an authentication site wherein upon entering your username and password, you get connected. The authentication page requires you to keep the tab open and work with another tab, otherwise you lose the connection. When working on a PC, it works like a charm. I keep the tab open and wifi sticks for long even when you're not active. But on a smartphone (I have a Galaxy S3 here), it's a living hell trying to keep it stay connected. I've tried keeping the browser app resident in memory, created a tasker script to browse the URL and reconnect on certain intervals which honestly is too tedious and needs a better solution, used wifi web login apps which don't work to my satisfaction i.e. don't connect just when connection is lost; but in all these cases, the connection just seems to disconnect making me reconnect time and again :/. I would be utterly grateful to anybody who could suggest a solution for me for this as this is seriously making me lose my sleep.
