Google has announced the availability of version 19 of their popular browser, Google Chrome. A couple of additions have been made to this version, along with a feature called Tab syncing. Head over to the video below to see what Tab syncing is all about. Google has also explained the feature pretty well in its official blog post. Say you’ve found an awesome recipe on your work computer, while... ahem... working hard at the office. But when you get back home, you can’t quite remember, if it was two teaspoons of baking soda or two teaspoons of baking powder. Wouldn’t it be cool if you could pull up the same recipe on your home computer with one click? With this new stable release of Chrome, it’s possible.
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 recipe tab right on your phone when you run out to the store for more ingredients. The back and forward buttons will even work, so you can pick up browsing right where you left off.
Chrome 19, available for download now
Open tabs aren’t the only things that sync when you sign-in to Chrome. Signing into Chrome also syncs your bookmarks, apps, extensions, history, themes, and other settings. That way, when you sign in to Chrome, you can have your personal Chrome experience on all your devices. Just go to the Chrome menu and select “Sign in to Chrome.” While Chrome will be updated to the latest stable version over the next few days, the tab sync feature will be rolled out more gradually over the coming weeks.
That’s a pretty nifty feature to have as all your data is now synced together on multiple devices. As mentioned earlier, the browsing history will work as well, so you won’t have to face the ugly ‘No connection error’. Users can seamlessly sift through their visited websites back and forth. Google Chrome 19 can be downloaded from here.
