Besides fixing a slew of security problems, Chrome 19’ brings in new feature ‘tab syncing‘. Chrome has long given us the power to sync our bookmarks, bookmarks, apps, extensions, history, themes, and other settings. Now, we can sync open tabs on all our devices. Just go to the Chrome menu and select “Sign in to Chrome.”
When you’re signed in to Chrome, your open tabs are synced across all your devices, so you can quickly access them from the “Other devices” menu on the New Tab page. If you’ve got Chrome for Android Beta, you can open the same tab right on your phone.
The back and forward buttons will even work, so you can pick up browsing right where you left off, check out the video below which gives you a look at how the new tab syncing works:
