    I haven t installed Yosemite or iOS 8....

    With continuity feature on safari is it possible when you close a tab on one device the same happens on the other devices....? :)

    Sorry mate.

    No, unfortunately all Handoff does is, send the page your on to another device using bluetooth (pairing not necessary), therefore the tabs are not synced.

    However I would send this suggestion to Apple, as I think it would be good for OS X 10.10.1!

    I have made a YouTube video about the Handoff feature in Continuity, it doesn't specifically answer your question, but I talk about just how it works, however please remember it is still beta.

    Take a look at it here: (the link pops up with an error, but just click the link again below this text: 'Or, continue at your own risk to').

    On a related note Safari on Yosemite and iOS 8 appear to be able to autofill URLs and searches using the history of another device.

    Update: Very annoying that mobile sites are included in the suggestions offered by desktop Safari. Could be useful when trying to get at a site you visited a while back but not when it replaces commonly viewed sites as the site that loads when you hit return.

    It does look like you can manage web pages on other devices via iCloud tabs - Seems a little spotty at the moment (I've tried closing tabs across different devices and it seems to work intermittently)
