Google Chrome now syncs open tabs across your devices

The latest stable release of Google Chrome automatically syncs your open tabs.

How many browser tabs do you keep open on your work computer during the day? Five? Maybe ten? If you're a Google Chrome user, there's now an easier way to access those tabs on your other devices, including a laptop or phone, without enduring a cumbersome copy-and-paste ritual.

The latest stable release of Chrome makes this possible, but only if you sign into Chrome with your Google account.

After you sign in, your open Chrome tabs sync across all of your devices. Google is rolling out the tab-sync feature gradually over the next few weeks, so you may not have access to it just yet.

Signing into Chrome syncs other browser settings too, including your bookmarks, apps, extensions, history, and themes.

Well, that's just dandy...but what if your other device happens to be an iPad or iPhone? Currently there's no iOS-specific version of the Chrome browser, although that may change soon. Macquarie Capital reports that Google is readying Chrome for iOS, which may launch in the second quarter at the earliest, or almost certainly before the end of 2012.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
