Google Chrome 19.0 Is Out, Keeps Tabs in Sync

On Tuesday, May 15, the team behind the Chrome web browser announced that version 19.0 has been released to the public. Or to put it in other words, Chrome 19.0 has been rolled out on the Stable Channel and is now available to Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and Chrome Frame users. If you already have Chrome installed on your machine, the browser will automatically update itself. If you don’t have the browser, you can download it now. Windows users can get Chrome 19 straight from FindMySoft here. But I digress.

As I was saying, Google rolled out Chrome 19 on the stable channel yesterday. Besides fixing a bunch of security problems, the browser comes with a handy new feature: tab sync.


If you are signed into your Google account, the Chrome browser will sync any changes you make to the browser settings. It will sync your bookmarks, extensions, themes, and more – but you already know that if you’re a passionate Chrome user. Version 19.0 enhances the browser’s syncing capabilities by adding tabs to the equation. This latest version of Chrome will also sync your open tabs across all your devices; you will be able to access them from the “Other devices” menu on the New Tab page.

Here’s a scenario where this new functionality comes in handy. While surfing the web on your home PC with Google Chrome, you found a nice recipe. You get your things and head off to the shops to get the ingredients you need. Once there, you can’t remember one of the ingredients. Get out your Android-powered device, launch Chrome for Android Beta and open the same recipe tab on your phone.

Raz Mathias, Software Engineer and Tab-Wrangling Server Jockey with Google, explained that Chrome 19 will be rolled out over the next few days and that the new tab sync feature will be rolled out over the coming weeks.

I mentioned above that Chrome 19 fixes some security problems. I’d like to add that none of them are critical.
