Setting up multiple browser profiles




Multiple browser profiles can be very useful -- whether because you use a shared computer - or like to keep your browsing habits & interested 'sandboxed'. Google Chrome has additional strengths here in that it allows you to truly have independent profiles. You can login using different profiles multiple times to different services(say GMail or Yahoo). 


For more try search on 'ChromeStart'

For Google Chrome Vista - home directory is:
C:\Users\<username>\
AppData\
Local\
Google\
Chrome\
Application


To make profile:
-Close all Google Chrome sessions
-Open local appdata folder & copy
-"..\User Data\Default" to "..\User Data\xyz"
-Run [
"C:\Users\


<username>


AppData\


Local\


Google\


Chrome\


Application\


chrome.exe"


--User_Data_Dir="..\User Data\xyz"
]


For Firefox - you'll need to:
-Close all Firefox sessions
-Run [ "C:\Program Files\
Mozilla Firefox\
firefox.exe"
-ProfileManager" ]
-Create "xyz"
-Run [ "C:\Program Files\
Mozilla Firefox\
firefox.exe"
-p "xyz" ]
