Google Chrome recently added an exciting feature which allows users to open tabs they have opened on other devices. For this, Chrome users are required to use built-in sync feature of Chrome. This supports Chrome beta for Android as well, which means if you have opened a web site on your Android tablet or phone using the Chrome browser, you can find it on Chrome on your desktop computer as well.
Hence, Chrome now supports tab synchronization which enables users to sync set of open tabs across multiple computers or devices. This is different from syncing browsing history which includes all URLs opened in different browsing sessions.
Tab Synchronization in Firefox
To enjoy tab sync in Firefox, sign-up for Firefox Sync through the option panel (Tools menu > Options > Sync tab) and link your other computers to start synchronizing your browsing data across them.
Once you have setup Firefox Sync on multiple computers, you can access tabs opened on other computers. For this, click the option “Tabs from Other Computers” in the history menu of Firefox (see the screenshot below).
This launches a new tab listing all linked computers (or browser installations) with the open tabs. Hence, you can open previously opened tabs on other devices easily! Alternatively, you can type
about:sync-tabs in the address bar of the browser and hit the enter key to view the same page.
Tab sync is another important feature of the modern browsers specially for the users having more than one device. There may be some alternate ways for syncing tabs but this method is simplest and does not require any extra effort or third-party tool.
