Google Chrome has reached the age of maturity, the 18th version, in less than three years after launch. Every time we got a final version, it was immediately announced the beta version of the next Chrome.
Chrome 19 Beta is here, and its real name is 19.0.1084.15. There’s a version optimized for Windows, Mac and Linux. Tabs can synchronize with other devices running Chrome, especially if you have Chrome Beta on a tablet or smartphone. Chrome Beta for Android runs only on smartphones and tablets with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (Samsung Nexus S, Galaxy Nexus, ASUS Transformer Prime, Motorola xoom and others).
Of course, like every other beta it promises a high speed browsing, but we can also expect bugs since it is only the beta version. Even if the introduction of the Google Chrome for Android version was a huge success and managed to slightly increase the rate of adoption of the browser on desktops or notebooks, it seems that there are some new features that could be implemented.
More specifically, the new beta version from Chrome will come with the ability to sync open tabs, as long as you are logged on all your systems. Thus, if until now you were limited to sync tabs from a computer with an Android smartphone, if you are willing to make the transition to the new Google Chrome beta, you will have the same functionality on other systems as well. A positive aspect of these functions is that, instead of replace the open tabs from other systems will appear in a separate menu called "other devices", to avoid confusion and to know which is which. Thus, the tabs left open on your home PC will be reopened automatically when you will open Google Chrome on your PC at work, or Android based mobile phones and tablets. The open tabs function in Google Chrome browser are saved in your Google account so that the "Sign in" option is required for users who want to access the last open pages on any device, meaning that this feature will be secured.

Along with the “open tabs” list, they also synchronized the browsing history, accessible with the Back / Forward buttons. Although announced for the Google Chrome beta channel, the enhanced synchronization function may not be available immediately for all users. Fortunately, Google promises to incorporate this feature in the public version of Google Chrome, in just a few weeks.
