So I find a news article I'd like to read but I don't have time to read it. Is there an app I could install on my phone and my computer to make it easy to me to just push this site to my phone? Ideally I would click a button in my browser and it would cause the browser on my phone to automatically open and display the website I want to read.

Any ideas?

Use a qr code generator to turn the url to a qr code and scan it with your phone?

I think chrome may also have something that accomplishes this. Something about syncing across platforms? Someone illuminate for me.

Ya I usually QR code it. But if you have Chrome beta you can see all the tabs you have opened on other devices and open the tabs on your phone/tablet

Chrome - Chrome to phone extension

Firefox - Fox to phone extension

The best way is to use Pocket(formerly Read It Later, also the name of FF extension). It is universal, Firefox, Chrome, Any android browser(share button) etc. I prefer it to Chrome to Phone.

Firefox has it, once desktop and mobile versions are synchronized.
You open mobile version, you find same bookmarks and open tabs.

This is the best, I have tried them all. I have Pocket on my phone, kindle fire, laptop, and work computer.

Maxthon browser has Cloud Push which is exactly what I was picturing when I asked this question. I didn't really want all my tabs to be synced and I didn't want to deal with add-ons , plugins, or 3rd party apps. I'll install Maxthon on each device and just use that. I like the interface better than any other browser so I'd be switching to it even without this feature.

Thanks for all the suggestions everyone. Much appreciated.
