Chrome 19 enters beta and adds synchronised tabs
Source: Google A beta of version 19 of Chrome, Google's own extended version of the open source WebKit-based Chromium browser, has been released. The new beta, labelled version 19.0.1084.15, now allows users signed into Chrome with their Google Accounts to synchronise their open tabs across all of their other devices. The feature is accessible via the "Other devices" menu on the New Tab page and also works with the company's Chrome for Android beta.
Google publishes Chrome versions in three channels, one for the current stable version, Beta for the next version to be released and Dev for the version coming after that. When a new stable release of Chrome is made, such as the recent release of Chrome 18, the beta and dev channels are usually updated in the following couple of weeks.
More details about the beta channel release can be found in a post on the Google Chrome Blog and in the change log. Chrome 19.0.1084.15 is available to download from dev.chromium.org for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and the Chrome Frame plug-in for Internet Explorer; existing beta channel users will be upgraded using the built-in update function. Those testing the release are asked to report any issues they find. The current stable branch of Chrome is version 18 from the end of March.
