New Brower Session on IE8/IE9 and Google Chrome

IE8 or IE9 (Microsoft Internet Explorer)
Use -nomerge switch when running IE.

Google Chrome (V12.0.742.124)

  • Use Ctrl + Shift + N to bring up a new Chrome window in the Incognito mode (private browsing). However, any subsequent window opened up this way will share the same session.
  • Use --user-data-dir switch with different profile locations when running Chrome. A bit awkward but can be mitigated by using shortcuts. However, each session will its own config and cache. For example,

google-chrome --user-data-dir=/home/tom/chrome-profiles/1
google-chrome --user-data-dir=/home/tom/chrome-profiles/2
google-chrome --user-data-dir=/home/tom/chrome-profiles/3
