Can I have and use alternately, 2 browsers on my computer or can I only have and use one?

Posted

I have Internet explorer and am thinking of changing it to something else, but do not want to delete it before I test out other browsers. Can I add another browser to my computer to test while I also keep and use Internet explorer?

Chosen solution

Yes, you can install any number of web browsers that you wish to, you can even have them running at the same time.

Do a custom install and install each version in its own program folder to use multiple Firefox versions.

Create a new profile exclusively for each Firefox version and create a desktop shortcut with -P "profile" appended to the target to launch each Firefox version with its own profile.
