It’s hardly been on the market a few weeks but already it seems people are customizing Google Chrome enough to want a backup of their Google Chrome profiles. And why not? If your PC or Chrome were to crash suddenly, you may lose all your add-ons and carefully customised Chrome interface.
Google Chrome Backup is a simple and easy to use tool to create, backup, restore and manage Google Chrome profiles. It can backup all the most essential components such as history, bookmarks, add-ons etc. It also works with Chromium which is basically the open source version of Google’s browser. It works very much like MozBackup for Mozilla profiles simply requiring you to select the profile you want to backup. In addition, it also features a restore function for corrupted profiles, the ability to delete old profiles and also create a new one.
While Google Chrome Backup adds a bit of presentation and ease to backing up profiles, you can of course still back it up manually by simply making a copy of the file located in: Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Chromium\User Data.
