Safari or Chrome handoff on iPhone

Is there a handoff feature on the iPhone Safari app or iPhone Chrome app to let me continue by browsing with open tabs on a desktop or vice versa?

Yes.

When you sign in to Chrome, you can save and sync things like your history, bookmarks, and passwords, so you can get to them on any device.
Sign into Chrome.

Safari and Firefox are other browsers that can do this as well.

Thx. I'm aware of the sign in feature of google chrome but I thought there was another way?  What about safari?  I see there is a handoff feature in iPhone settings.

Yes, Safari has a feature where you can add Reading Lists.

Open Safari on your iPhone.
Go to a website that has an article you want to read later.
Click the Share icon. (its the box with the up arrow located at the bottom of the browser)
Click 'Add to Reading List.' (the glasses icon)
Open Safari on your mac.
Open the Sidebar. (Its usually default closed and the icon to open it is located in the upper left area of the browser)
Click the Glasses icon.
You should see the site you just added from your iPhone to your Reading List.

(The reason I suggested Chrome first is personal preference and can be used on macs and PCs while Safari is limited to mac only.)

Hi

Thanks for the comment.  Is the handoff feature on a Mac / iPhone actually to do with the reading list though?
