From pattern locks to the controversial face unlock, there are a number of different ways you can secure your Android phone's lockscreen.

Send your Android Bookmarks to Google Chrome/Chromium
If you use Android, you may know of Chrome to Phone, which uses the Google Talk API (a cloud to device messaging service). In short, it allows Google to push things to your device. XDA member vbsteven has done the opposite so to say.
The app allows for users to push their bookmarks to their Google Chrome bookmarks or Chromium on their desktop. This is especially useful if you use your phone often for research and need to send a link to yourself.

The Chrome extension can be found on chrome.google.com/extensions if you search for ‘bookmarktodesktop’
