I want to test out the CAT tool Isometry which works only in the Google Chrome Web browser.

Is it possible to install the Google Chrome while still having Firefox as my main browser? What would be the install / settings procedure in order to avoid "messing up" my system?
I use Windows 7 Home.

Thanks very much for your feedback,

I am fond of web-designing and need different browsers to test pages.
I have several browsers installed and see no problems when working with them.

hi Aug 1, 2011


You may have as many browsers installed as you like. Simply download the Chrome install file and always click next. However, pay attention to uncheck the boxes when it asks whether you want Chrome as your default browser or not; uncheck toolbars also.
In fact, you already have IE and Firefox "in parallel".

If you want to mess up your system, there are better ways to do it.
Kind regards,
