For browser, it can be considered as the most important tool in the world of internet. Without it, you can't enjoy your computer or smartphone as freely as you want. The data in it is of course much more important. If you have bookmarks, passwords, website and other information stored in it, you will definitely want them with you regardless of the computer or smartphone you're on. Actually, it's easy to transfer browser data in Chrome with your Google account, but it can be frustrating to share information using different browsers. This article will provide the detailed instructions on how to sync your browser data in Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera for your computer or smartphone.

Note: We've introduced how to always start your browser in private browsing mode by default last time, Google Chrome, IE, Firefox and Opera included.

1. Chrome

For Google Chrome, you just need to sign in your Google account and use your Gmail ID to sync your browser data. Then do the following steps. By default, Chrome syncs your apps, autofill data, bookmarks, extensions, address bar history, passwords, settings etc.

  • Step 1. Open Chrome and click on the menu button in the upper right hand corner.
  • Step 2. Select Settings.
  • Step 3. Under the Sign in option, click on Sign into Chrome.

  • Step 4. Enter your Gmail account.

Then simply follow the same steps on the other computer with the same Gmail account. You can choose to sync bookmarks, apps, extensions, settings, tabs, themes and more. You can specify by opening the Settings screen and clicking Advanced sync settings under Sign in.

2. Internet Explorer

In fact, only if you use Windows 8, you could have the ability to sync your Internet Explorer settings, favorites, and history between your Windows 8 computers with your Microsoft account. Microsoft doesn't provide a way to access this data on smartphone.

  • Step 1. Go to PC Settings > Sync your settings > Browser.
  • Step 2. Switch the option to On.
