I'm using the OneTab extension for Chrome on all of my PC's and I'm looking for a solution/workaround to sync all the tabs automatically across my computers. OneTab doesn't provide any sync capability yet, I even emailed them to ask but I got no answer.

So far, I'm using the import/export feature but I don't like this method as it adds more frustration to the whole experience.

Any possible solution to "fix" this? I know I'm not the only one out there with the same request.

We don't do product recomendations here at Superuser. Xmarks supports this sort of functionality though. – Ramhound Aug 12 '13 at 15:38
I'm not looking for a product recommendation, just a workaround of how I can solve this problem. Couldn't find anything on google and thought that some Superusers might already fix that somehow. :) – Jimmy Aug 12 '13 at 16:17
There isn't a non-software work around for this problem. The extension you have selected to use does not support what you want, so a different extension, is required to do it. – Ramhound Aug 12 '13 at 16:39
Ok. Thanks for your answer. – Jimmy Aug 12 '13 at 16:50
From OneTab team : "March 2015 Update: We're currently working on new features including an option for multi-PC cloud sync." – politicus May 16 '15 at 10:27

Your question was legitimate. Find the local storage for your chrome extension and share that folder via dropbox or other cloud sync solution. Do the same thing on your other PCs... Be careful, your different One Tab bookmarks won't merge.. So make sure to take what you want from the secondary PCs first, and then remove the One Tab files on them, before syncing with your main PC.. Once you've done this, you can save One Tab's on any PC and they will all sync.

For fellow Linux users: on my system this file is located at /home/me/.config/google-chrome/Default/Local Storage/chrome-extension_XXX_0.localstorage and ...-journal – Jack Senechal Jun 11 '15 at 22:27
Tying into @JackSenechal's comment, on Windows, it would be located in /AppData/Local/Google/Chrome/User Data/Default/Local Storage/. Additionally, the OneTab website ( makes mention as of October 2015 that they are working on their own syncing solution. – David Metcalfe Nov 20 '15 at 21:50

You can easily share one tab as url(see image above) or use search for cloud based similar solution. Which is I think is TabCloud.
