I have an android "jelly bean" tablet. My laptop is on the same wifi network as my tablet and currently uses windows 7. The tablet still runs on factory version of android 4.1.2 and kernel 3.4.0 though I'm thinking of installing custom rom and all that good stuff.

I was wondering whether there is a way to allow me to open google chrome tabs on my Laptop using my tablet (and not remote desktop) or move tabs that i have open on my tablet to my laptop and vice versa. E.g. I'm browsing internet on on chrome on my tablet but have chrome open on my laptop aswell and i want to move the tab to the bigger screen on my laptop or i need to leave the house but i have a page that I'm reading on my laptop and i want to move it to my tablet so i can continue reading later. 

Also I'm using the default email on my tablet but is there a way to open links from emails on my laptop by using my tablet? E.g. I press on the link and the page pops up on my laptop instead of tablet? 

If its impossible with chrome are there browsers that allow it? I know that i can bookmark items on pc and open bookmarks from my tablet and vice versa but it takes too much effort and I'm trying to make all my devices as connected together as possible


If you need any more information about any specifications etc. i can post them just tell me what you need.

Maybe not exactly opening tabs. But what you describe a lot can be accomplished using Pushbullet.

This looks really nice though it's not exactly what I wanted. I will give it a try though if anyone knows any other apps like that please post it here.
