The year 2020 has been a year of change for Microsoft. The Redmond firm has notably abandoned its old Edge browser for the new version based on Chromium. This has many advantages compared to its predecessor.
The new Microsoft Edge allows for example the playback of Netflix in 4K and the blocking of cookies from websites. However, if there is one feature that has won over users, it isthe ability to synchronize Microsoft Edgetabs and history between all their devices. This option took a while to emerge, but the wait was worth it. As a reminder, it was to be launched during the summer of 2020. However, it did not arrive until several months later.
If you want to know how to sync your Microsoft Edge tabs, this is where it happens!
Sync your tabs on Windows 10 and macOS
The sync option is available on Windows 10, macOS, Android, and iOS. However, for the moment, it has only been deployed in certain parts of the world, including the United Kingdom. If you are not in that country, you can always download the beta version of Edge Chromium to access it.
Enabling tabs and history sync is pretty easy. To get started, you'll need to be signed in with the same Microsoft account on at least two devices. Next, you will need to make sure that the option is enabled on each of these devices. If you're using Windows 10 or macOS, open Edge Chromium.
