The latest Chrome Beta features the ability to sync tabs across multiple devices, Google revealed in a blog post Tuesday. The ability to sync tabs has been a long time coming as far as Chrome is concerned, with Firefox having had it as an integrated feature since the release of version 4 last year. More after the jump.
In its blog post, Google described a typical usage scenario thus: “Imagine you’ve looked up directions to a cool new restaurant on your home computer. Later, when you’re leaving work, you realize you can’t quite remember how to get there. If only you could quickly pull up the same directions on your office computer with one click!”
“Well, with the latest Chrome Beta, you can. When you’re signed in to Chrome, the tabs you have open on one device are available on all your other devices—just click the “Other devices” menu on the New Tab page.”
Apart from open tabs, Chrome will also sync the tabs’ back and forward navigation history across all your devices, allowing you to “pick up browsing right where you left off.”
