Default Share Webpage URL

I am looking for a "one click" extension/app/method that will allow me to share a webpage I am viewing with someone else, or myself on a different device.

Use case

(1): When my wife is on her PC at her desk across from mine and I want to share and discuss a webpage I am looking at. I click a "share send" button on my browser and tell her to click on a "share receive" button and it brings up a new tab in her browser with what I am looking at. She sees something that she wants to share with me and sends her "Share Send" so that I can see what she is looking at.

(2) I click on the "share send" button on my PC and I then have it available on my phone or tablet when I click on the "share recieve" button (or from my phone/tablet to my PC).

Method might be a little different from above, but needs to be "one-click" simple. I'm not looking for a dynamic screen presentation kind of app/extension, but just passing the URL of what I am currently looking at.

I know I can use email, but it's not "one-click" simple.

There used to be a website that provided the ability with bookmarks (one send, another receive), but it no longer exists (called "keep it with me" - it's been hijacked with a PC alert and scam to call Microsoft the last time I looked).

Thanks, Carl

The link on that webpage for toreadcc is not working for me?!

Is it working for anyone else? I can't seem to be able to get to their homepage?!

In fact, I just tried 3 different browsers and I can't find hide nor hair of this program/feature anywhere....

Actually, for me, it links to a different page every time I try it. It's weird. It links to some type of advertising page that changes or is different each time.

It's very strange: for me it simply stays on the same cnet page and doesn't link to anything!

We are talking about the link that the CNET article links to . Due to that link being non-functional, the posts will have to be removed.

What browser are you on? Firefox pretty much supports what you're asking for.
For (1): Firefox has a "share this page" button. You can use it with several services, like facebook, twitter, google+, or tumblr.
For (2): Firefox has "Pocket" integrated - or you can get Pocket as an add-on for most other browsers, if I'm not mistaken. There, you can save a page to read later, and it will pop up on your phone.
Mind you, none of these features use a "receive" button, in case that was a requirement.
Also, I am sort of biased towards firefox - that's the browser I use the most, and the browser I am the most familiar with.
