How to have 2 browsers (google chrome & firefox)

by jijo272 / February 27, 2013 4:04 AM PST

I would like to have 2 browsers: Firefox for everything else and Google Chrome for with Java enabled ONLY.

What do I do first? Right now Pogo is attached to Firefox. Should I remove it and then download Google Chrome? Then assign Pogo to The Google Chrome?

Thanks for any suggestions as I'm trying to have the safest browsing possible.

Not sure what your concern is . . .

I run IE, FF, and Chrome on three PCs. All at the same time as each one has different benefits.

One is set as default,your choice, the other(s) are secondary usually just set as shortcuts to be used as desired.
