I often have the case when I find something interesting on my phone but need to actually use it on my laptop, but it is currently offline.

This my be a Windows software or a web page.

What would be the best way to share such information (a URL to make it easier) and do that it is displayed on my PC when I am back online (as a popup, or alert)?

If it is strictly pages from a browser you can use the "send tab to device" feature of Firefox and Chrome. Other browsers might have similar functions.


I have two options:

  1. From your phone browser share the URL to your e-mails address. You will later work on that when you are on your PC
  2. If you use FireFox or Chrome on your phone you can create a bookmark folder called "watch later" and save the content to that folder. You then need to sync your phone browser with your PC browser

Answers so far are good. You could also get a free DropBox account, which gives 2gB storage.

That will synch when you log in to your laptop. I use it for two way file synch of my Keepass password file, plus a few other files.

  • I self-host a complete file-sharing system so this is not a problem. The thing is that I do not want to share files but URLs.
