Google Chrome 19 beta brings live, remote tab syncing

updated 01:40 pm EDT, Tue April 10, 2012

Chrome 19 allows opening tabs from Android, more

Google has posted a Chrome 19 beta that answers a common call for fast access to tabs across devices. Signing in on the same Google account both on a desktop and an Android device running Chrome for Android will give either device access to whatever tabs happen to be open on that device at that moment. The approach makes it easy to continue reading an article from an Android phone or to check directions that were just on the desktop.

The appearance of the device list isn't automatic and is instead filtering out to those on the beta track over the course of the next week.

Chrome 19 should be available for Linux, Macs, and Windows PCs. Most betas typically last for four to six weeks before a finished version reaches the stable channel. Chrome for Android needs at least an Android 4.0 device, however, such as the Galaxy Nexus or an HTC One series phone.

    Beta 19?

    Re: "Google has posted a Chrome 19 beta..."

    Might as well be the 19th beta of an unreleased project.
    Does Google really think a web-based OS will take over the world?

    Didn't help Netscape much.
