I believe that every click in a browser window is a "navigate" event.  So, check your browser controls and add code to invoke the navigate event of the other, from inside the navigate event (or after_navigate or whatever is available).

If you are always using one control as the master, and the other as the slave, then you shouldn't have any issues, but if you want each one to trigger the other, then there is some danger of getting into an infinite loop, so, be careful and set some breakpoints at first.
