I have been using Chrome’s new “Open Tab on Remote Device” capability ever since it was first introduced months ago. It’s a great productivity compliment to “pinning a tab.” From any device I use on a regular basis (Macbook Air, Mac Mini, iPad or Android) my open Chrome tabs are synchronized and available. This is different from synchronized bookmarks. This provides a whole new level of fluidity between the devices where I access the Internet. And pretty much all my information processing and content creation is via a web browser.
For example, if I leave a web site/app open on the shared Mac Mini in the kitchen I can continue to access the same site on my personal Macbook Air, or any other device that supports the Chrome browser. (Today that now includes all iOS devices.) This functionality is not some third-party add-in, but rather a fully supported built-in feature.
Here is what the UI experience looks like from my Macbook Air:
This is the “Open a new tab” screen showing my frequent sites. Notice the “Other Devices” at the bottom?
Here is the Chrome settings screen:
Tick the “Open Tabs” option to enable this great new feature.
