Say I was doing research on Black Friday shopping and I opened 30 tabs in 5 windows at office. I want to continue the research at home. I could use remote desktop, but it would be much better if I can simply click a button and have all the tabs loaded at home.

To achieve that, I was going to write a plugin to automatically save all opened tabs on a server. But I'm afraid I'm re-inventing the wheel. Do you know any existing software that can do just this?

(Answers for any major browser is OK)

I found two useful Google Chrome extensions, TabCloud:… and FreshStart:… – netvope Nov 14 '10 at 9:03

Firefox can do so using Firefox Sync (previously known as Mozilla Weave)

Xmarks can do so across any device with a browser.

This workaround allows you to sync tabs in Opera.

I thought Xmarks can only sync bookmarks. Thanks for the link! I wish Xmarks will continue to provide some free service after being acquired =) – netvope Nov 14 '10 at 3:50
+1 - Xmarks rocks. @netvope: I think they will continue to provide a free service, alongside a premium service (details not clear yet) - – Zayne S Halsall Nov 14 '10 at 20:24
Firefox doesn't really sync the tabs, as in the 30 tabs in 5 windows appear on your other computers, it just makes a list of tabs available on your other computers. I wish I could actually get it to load the tabs over on the other computers too. – Matthew Lock Jun 23 '12 at 5:31

Opera can do so using Sync Open Tabs extension.

Google Chrome has this functionality built in. Check out this article on how to open tabs from Chrome on other devices. It allows you to see the tabs opened on other devices, open them one or all of them.
