Google Chrome now syncs open tabs across devices in real time
SAN FRANCISCO, May 17 — The newly released Chrome 19 Stable version of Google Chrome introduces live tab syncing across desktop and mobile versions of the internet browser.
For users, this means that they can open a website on their home computer and access the same website when they get to work without having to search for the page again.
“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,” said Raz Mathias, software engineer at Google.
The tab syncing feature is also available on mobile devices running Chrome for Android Beta.
In addition to tab syncing, the latest version of the internet browser keeps tabs on your bookmarks, apps, extensions, history, themes and other settings across devices, delivering your own personalized Chrome experience whenever and wherever you opt to “Sign in to Chrome.”
According to a report on Business Insider, Macquarie analyst Ben Schachter says that a version of of Google Chrome is due to arrive in Apple’s iOS App Store in 2012.
Chrome will automatically update to the latest stable version over the next few days while the tab syncing experience will be rolled out in the following weeks. — AFP/Relaxnews
