this is nice, but does Chrome have anything like FF's profile feature?

It's about time. I've been having to use beta, dev and Chromium builds that crash all the time, just so I could have my extensions. Thanks for the heads up.

I'm running the dev build and I've got it set just right with a great look and the extensions I want.
I have had some stability issues (mostly with Googles own apps) but nothing drastic.

Will this install over what I have or will I have two Chrome installs?

I'm pretty sure that it will install over what you have, unless you were running a Chromium build.

Edit: After running it for a bit, it definitely does seem more stable, especially on Facebook. I've only had one crash so far, so I guess we'll see how it goes.

Sort of. If you add -user-data-dir="drive:\dir" to the end of the target box in the exe properties, you can specify where cache files go. But theres no hard profiling like FF's.

Good news

Love chrome but I also have concerns regarding the apparent lack of a moz backup utility or Weave for saving my extensively tweaked beta 4 Chrome profile. Has it been confirmed that Stable 4 will dl'd over top & into the existing build, leaving everything in tact ? Strikes me as rather odd that no one (especially Google) has made a profile backup tool considering the rapid release rate of Chrome builds. A search came up with a few tool claiming to backup a bit more than just bookmarks but none were newer than 2.

Anyone knowing of a utility or method let me know please!
Regards,

Interesting, thanks. I'll look into that. FF ain't perfect but the profile thing cuts down on a lot of headaches.
