Unfortunately, being able to resume your browsing activity with Timeline doesn't work with any other browsers officially, but now with the help of a third-party extension, you can add that functionality easily.

Timeline is an excellent addition to Windows 10, introduced as part of the April 2018 Update. Right now, it appears Windows Timeline Support is bringing a much-needed feature to top browsers, making it easy for Windows users to switch between devices without having to look into shared history. However, three months after its debut, while still being reasonablyMicrosoft centric with apps like the Office suite or Edge, third-party offerings such as VLC have also mad use of Timeline to sync app activity across devices. "Today people work and play across multiple applications, platforms and devices and we want to make this easier and more seamless for our customers, so they can focus on what's important - creating and getting things done", Microsoft had explained a year ago.

If you're interested in using the extension, you can install Windows Timeline Support extension from the Chrome web store. Another pleasant surprise is the integration of Timeline with Windows 10, so you'll be able to see all the activity on your Android smartphone too. A sign-in to your Microsoft account is necessary through the plug-in, though it's only a one-time affair.
