07 Google adds tab synchronization through Chrome Beta channel

Google is working towards rolling in a new feature for Chrome that will be of benefit to many of today's users. In arguably the best addition yet to its recent shift of focus in providing an extensive set of synchronization features, Google is about to put a cherry on top for us with an announcement on the official Chrome blog yesterday that it is going to start gradually rolling out a new "Tab Sync" feature to Chrome's Beta channel 'over the coming week'.

06 Google adds tab synchronization through Chrome Beta channel

Tab synchronization across multiple systems/platforms is definitely a feature that will be useful to a lot of people. At this stage it doesn't have the tabs physically opened across all of your devices, but what it does do is provide you with an "Other devices" menu to the new tab page, whereby clicking on it will call up tabs that they have open on other devices (yes, including Android).

The other nice touch with this tab synchronization feature is that it doesn't just show the latest page displayed when you open up a tab from another device; it retains that tab's full history allowing you to click back through previous pages you may have been to on that tab.

While we now know it's coming for sure, if you don't want to be left hanging out for it any longer, you can always join the Chrome Beta channel via this page.
