Google Releases Chrome 19

May 25, 2012

Google's release of Chrome 19 features support for tab synchronization, bug fixing, and patching vulnerabilities.

According to Raz Mathias on the Google Chrome blog, “When you’re signed in to Chrome, your open tabs are synced across all your devices, so you can quickly access them from the ‘Other devices’ menu on the New Tab page.” Using “Chrome for Android Beta,” you can open the same tab on your phone. The forward and back buttons also work, so you can continue browsing where you left off. Mathias states that the tab sync feature will be rolled out gradually over the coming weeks. 

According to the blog, signing in to Chrome also syncs your bookmarks, apps, extensions, history, themes, and other settings. To use the feature on your Android phone, you must have Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or higher and the Chrome Beta mobile browser installed.

More information is available from the Google Chrome blog.
