Chrome Beta update syncs tabs across computers and Android

Google has released an update for its Chrome Beta web browser that lets you sync your tabs across multiple computers and devices. The update expands on the tabs feature that was introduced with the Chrome Beta for Android release back in February, which offered a convenient tab-based navigation where you could access tabs you've opened on one device from another as long as you are signed in.

With the latest Chrome Beta release you can now do the same across your Mac, Windows, and Linux computers. If you're signed into your Google account, the tabs you have opened on one computer can be easily accessible on other computers or Android devices. The synced tabs won't replace the tabs you have open on your current device. They are instead placed in the "Other devices" menu on the New Tab page.

The back and forward navigation history for the tab is also included, so that you can pick up browsing right where you left off if you have to switch computers or devices. It works with the Chrome Beta for Android allowing you to continue browsing on the go using your mobile phone or tablet without losing your place.
