Separate Installation

Unread post by Giraffe » 2016-11-14, 18:03

I'm trying out the Portable version as I don't want to risk altering the present one, v26.5.
Is it possible to install the Beta into another folder and avoid it seeing the existing profile for v26.5? I don't want any commonality between them, for obvious reasons.

Just trying to follow the mantra of 'if you can't fix it, don't break it'.

Use the portable version. It uses its own profile folder.

That's what I'm doing at present, but I remember the warnings on earlier versions about not being suitable as the main browser, so wanted to try a full-fat version.
