How to Integrate Chrome and Firefox Activity to Windows 10 Timeline?

One of the significant new features in Windows 10 1803 is the Timeline which lets
the user to easily view and go back to what you have actually been doing on your
computer system. It is a more vigorous version of the Task View (Alt+Tab), and it
will also allow the user to go back up to 30 days of history easily. Though it works
great with the Windows application and also with some third-party app, there is a
conspicuous lapse. There is no any other web browser support other than for
the Microsoft Edge. So you cannot even resume your browsing activity from the
Windows Timeline in almost two most popular browsers. But now you can easily
do it with the help of a browser extension for both Firefox and Chrome.

Steps to Integrate Chrome and Firefox Browsing to Windows Timeline

As the process of installation is always effortless; you just need to install it like
you would have any browser add-on or the extension. And after successfully
installing the extension, now you will need to sign in with your Microsoft account
via the application on every device which you want to sync.

Subsequently, your browsing history will sync with Windows Timeline
automatically, just like Microsoft Edge does.

The next amazing feature of Timeline is that it can easily push open tabs on your
web browser from one Windows 10 device to another. And for this follow the
below given steps:

1. Click on the Extension icon
2. Select “Open this page on another device” from the menu tab
3. Click to select the device to push the page
4. Now, the page will automatically open up on another machine

However, the extension is created by the Grid Entertainment’s Dominic Maas who
is also the developer for the Sound Byte; it’s a Windows 10 UWP app only for
SoundCloud. But still, the extensions are in Beta and also free to use for the users.
So, always keep in your mind that everything might not work correctly
sometimes. And Maas will note many more other features which will be easily
added in the future such as the blacklisting sites. It will thwart you from the
random searches and from cluttering up your Windows Timeline. This type of
extension adds a great ability for the Windows Timeline that the official
developers should have to add to their browsers precedent.
