As for your opening your browser to past pages, most browsers do that now. Chrome allows you to share history and favourites across any device you use with chrome. Eg, I'm reading an article on my mobile, I get home and go to my PC and it's in my history and shared pages waiting for me.
I didn't realize this but IE seems to share history and bookmarks between my Surface and desktop PC as well. If I have tabs open on my Surface, when I get to my PC, IE can bring them up too.
