Sending links between desktop and phone browsers

I've been looking for a while for an app, plugin or service that allows me to easily move browser tabs between my desktop and my phone, both ways. So far, to send a URL to my phone, I would convert it to a QR code via a Chrome app, then scan that code with my phone and open it that way. To send a URL back to my desktop, I'd just have to email the link to myself.

Lifehacker recently featured 2SendTab for Android that might be just the thing I need, allowing me to post and retrieve links on all of my devices in any direction. The only problem I have is that it involves yet another web app that requires yet another login account, and some days that alone is enough to turn me away.

PS - If Chrome synchronised its tabs with Android, I might not even need this.
PPS - But I imagine that's a hassle in its own right.

Umm, Chrome already does this but you need ICS on your phone so unless you have a nexus I think you'll have to wait for your phone to update.

Really? That sounds great! Unfortunately my phone carrier has yet to release ICS/Android 4.0 for my handset, but I look forward to using that feature when it does.
