Push Tabs with Firefox Sync

Firefox for Android has lots of nifty features, but there is one tool I find particularly useful. As you may know, the browser boasts a synchronization feature aptly named Firefox Sync. Usually, it sits in the background and quietly syncs bookmarks, history, passwords, and tabs across multiple devices. The clever part is that Firefox Sync integrates with Android's sharing functionality, which lets you push the currently opened website to another linked machine or device. You can put this feature to many practical uses.

I use it as a "read-it-when-you're-back-home" tool. When I'm on the move, and I stumble upon an interesting web page, I push it to my production machine at home. When I return, I fire up Firefox, and the browser automatically opens all pushed pages in separate tabs.
