I want to close the child tab and refresh the parent tab scenario.

script

function closeRefresh(){      
        window.opener.location.href="/{!$CurrentPage.parameters.id}";
        window.top.close();
       }

This script is working fine in Chrome but it is not working in IE .In IE the child tab itself refreshing and loading the parent page in the child tab.

For IE window.opener will not work you have to use window.showModalDialog. You can pass parameters from parent to child as well as child to parent. window.showModalDialog return a value to parent based upon that you can refresh the parent. window.showModalDialog will work for IE and FF you have to handle in JavaScript accordingly. Here is a parent child example.

parent.html

<html>
<body>
<script language="JavaScript">
function openWindow() {
   var myArguments = new Object();
   myArguments.bgcolor = document.all.myColor.value;
   var dialogResults = window.showModalDialog("child.html", myArguments, '');
   if ( (dialogResults != undefined) && (dialogResults != '') && (dialogResults != false) ){
      alert(dialogResults);
      window.location=window.location;
   }
} 
</script>
<select id="myColor">
    <option value="red">Red</option>
    <option value="green">Green</option>
    <option value="blue">Blue</option>
    <option value="yellow">Yellow</option>
</select>
<button onclick="openWindow();">Open window</button>
</body>
</html>

child.html

<html>
<head>
  <script>
    var oMyObject = window.dialogArguments;
    var bgColor = oMyObject.bgcolor;    
    function closeWindow() {
        alert(bgColor);
        window.returnValue = 'Refresh';
        window.close();
    }
  </script>
</head>

<body>
    <a href="#" onClick="closeWindow();">Click here to close the window</a>
</body>

</html>

Sounds like you are using the console? If that's the case then you will need to look at the Console Integration Toolkit.

Here's a link to the example from Salesforce https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.api_console.meta/api_console/sforce_api_console_sample_vf.htm

Make sure you pay particular attention to their best practices: https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.api_console.meta/api_console/sforce_api_console_best_practices.htm

If you aren't using Console then try this: https://salesforce.stackexchange.com/a/46195/11369 .
