    MS is widely talking about Windows 10 supporting wide range of devices right from phones to PC's. Syncing emails, office applications etc is really a great feature that MS has introduced to the windows platform. Much needed.

    One clarification here, Is MS introducing browser based sync across all its platforms. Like we have in google chrome that our bookmarks in PC,s are accessible in android tablets or phones anytime, anywhere. Is Microsoft edge for PC's and phones implementing the feature. Well, I have been a fan and a lover of windows phone, and so far, the only feature, that i badly need is this. I am sure, most of them who kinda is working on some research projects do need this as a necessity.

    Anything on this?

    Not on iOS and Android since there's no IE or Edge there apparently.

    But Internet Explorer syncs tabs between devices. (modern IE, desktop IE, on the phone with WP 8.1...)

    And how do I set up sync between devices ? Any idea? Just like chrome directly bookmark and access it?

    It has to be enabled on the phone (settings > sync my settings) and you must have Windows 8 or greater. (signed into the same MS account)

    Favorites (bookmarks) also auto sync across devices as well
    Microsoft's tab sync isn't good though as it's very slow to sync
