Managing Profiles

If you use the Internet at home and at work, you may want to have access to a different set of bookmarks, preferences, address books, email accounts, Sidebar setup, and so on. Similarly, family members may want to share a copy of the same browser software but keep their Internet identities separate.

The Profile Manager lets you create different profiles, each with its own bookmarks, preferences, email settings, and so on. You automatically create a default profile when you first install your browser software. After you create one or more additional profiles, you will be asked which you want to use each time you launch the browser.
