    I'm currently looking for a solution to solve this problem I'm facing. Basically I own a MacBook and an iMac, generally the MacBook is used for emails and IMs while the iMac is for work proposes. However from time to time I get sent hyperlink be it via email or an IM chat. So I was wondering if there is any way to open up a hyperlink directly from the MacBook and appear on the iMac in Safari or Firefox.

    As I much prefer to browse in the larger screen resolution, and majority of the time the links are work related so it's easier to edit via the iMac. I know of things such as ScreenSharing however it's just too much work to get a link from the MacBook to the iMac via the ScreenSharing app.

    Anyone know of any software or hardware that can combat this problem?

    Thanks in advance,

    its rather low-tech.. but i'd just create an alternate ichat/skype/otherIM username for the imac.. then just send the link across it from mb to imac? Simple enough?

    Hmm interesting idea. However it is rather messy, need something that can run in the background almost.
