Synchronize browser data and passwords on each device

An ordinary person today does not have a single computer, he also has a tablet, a smartphone and perhaps even another laptop or desktop computer.
On each device, computer or mobile phone you can surf the internet and use your favorite browser with the same synchronized data, to open a web page on your computer and also access it from your smartphone without having to find it and not having to write the passwords for access to the various accounts web more than once.
Speaking of the most popular browsers, Internet Explorer, Opera, Firefox, Safari and Chrome, all support data synchronization although with some important limitations.
The first limitation is that the various browsers do not talk to each other, that is, you cannot think of using Chrome on one computer and Firefox on the other and keep the same data, favorites and passwords.
The other limitation is that the various browsers work well on some devices and not on others so the choice depends on which device you have.

Google Chrome is clearly the browser that makes it easier to synchronize data across multiple devices.
In practice Chrome works on all computers in the same way, whether they are Windows, Linux and Mac and also on all Android and iOS smartphone and tablet devices and also on Chromebooks.
The only device where Chrome doesn't exist for now is the Windows Phone.
Google Chrome allows you to synchronize your browser data via your Google or Gmail account. To set this up, click on the Chrome menu button and then on Sign in to Chrome .
From the Settings you can control which data to synchronize and, therefore, whether to include passwords in addition to favorites, history, automatic filling data, extensions and applications and open tabs.
Chrome encrypts passwords and, optionally, all data can always be encrypted from the synchronization settings.
With Google Chrome you can rest assured that, whatever device you use, the browser remains the same, with the same settings, extensions and favorites.
Chrome is also more flexible than other browsers because it has extensions for synchronization on other browsers such as Dolphin.
Firefox exists as a browser for Windows, Mac, Linux PCs and for Android mobiles.
There is no Firefox for iPhone and iPad and for Windows Phone.
Firefox uses Firefox Sync to synchronize browser data which has been made much simpler in a recent update.
Firefox Sync synchronizes bookmarks, passwords, options, history, open tabs and add-ons between computers and with Android smartphones and tablets.
Firefox encrypts all this data.

Internet Explorer
If you use Internet Explorer as a browser, it is very likely that you have never used data synchronization.
The only way to synchronize Internet Explorer data is to have Windows 8 PC.
If you are using Windows 8, you can synchronize Internet Explorer settings, favorites, history in your Microsoft account.
Microsoft does not provide a way to access this data from a smartphone, not even from IE on Windows Phone.
Opera uses data synchronization similar to that of Chrome, based on the Opera account.
Safari is a browser for Mac, iPhone and iPad, not available on Android and even more on Windows PCs where it has not been updated since 2012.
Safari uses iCloud to synchronize open tabs, bookmarks and other browser data between Mac, iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
Apple offers instructions for activating iCloud on Mac and iOS devices.
Safari bookmarks can be synced on Mac, PC, iPad, iPhone, Chrome and Firefox
Other solutions to synchronize data between different browsers
Different tools and extensions allow you to synchronize or at least transfer data from one browser to another.
These can be particularly useful if you are using Internet Explorer on PC and Safari on iPhone or Chrome on Android and firefox on PC or for other lesser known web browsers.
The best program to use to synchronize passwords in order to keep them stored on all browsers and devices is LastPass .
Both programs are free in their version for PC and computer, not for the smartphone version.
