The latest beta version of Google’s Chrome browser is now available for download. It includes a new open tab sync features that makes it possible for users to transfer open tabs from various devices including not only the PC but also Macs and Android smartphones.
Users who update to the new Chrome beta will be able transfer tabs by using the “other devices” menu now introduced to the New Tab page. Transferring a tabbed browsing session in this way not only moves the page but also the page history, so it’s possible to use the back/forward buttons to re-visit pages previously opened on the other device.
You will, of course, need to have Chrome installed and open on the devices you’re using. Logging in with your Google account is required, as well. Android users need to make sure they have the Chrome for Android beta installed – which is only currently available for Ice Cream Sandwich.
Chrome’s beta roll-outs take place over time, so you are not guaranteed to have this feature immediately. Google is promises that the roll-out will take place over the coming week, however, so there’s a decent chance the feature will be active by the time you read this.
Go download the beta and check it out.
