Hello! Using multiple versions of Brave in the same PC, for example: release, beta, Nightly, found that they share the same user data directory and are not stored separately. This approach is very bad, because once I delete the user data of one of the versions, It will cause all versions of user data to be deleted, and I use it for more purposes, hoping the next version can improve this problem. Different versions release, beta, Nightly their user data directory should be stored separately, like: Chrome and Edge, so that I can install multiple different versions in the same PC to do more things and use it to Replacing the very annoying Edge.

您好!在同一台PC中使用多个版本的Brave,例如:release、beta、Nightly发现它们之间共享同一个用户数据目录没有分开存储,这样的做法非常糟糕,因为我一旦删除其中一个版本的用户数据,将会导致所有版本的用户数据都被删除,而且我发用它做更多的用途,希望下一个版本可以改进这个问题。不同的版本release、beta、Nightly它们的用户数据目录应该分开存储,就像:Chrome和Edge一样,这样我就可以在同一台PC中安装多个不同的版本做更多的事情了从而使用它来取代非常讨厌的Edge了。

Hi and welcome to the community. :slightly_smiling_face:

I am a community member and I use windows 10 and have the Release and Beta versions installed. They both have their own User Data folder. I do not know why your install uses the same folder and how that could be. Just thought I would post the difference in my install in case it helps with troubleshooting your issue. Good luck!

And brave to multi-tab support is very unfriendly! I hope it can be redesigned and improved, thanks a lot!

It is recommended that the offline installers in github should have standardized version naming, e.g.
Release, Beta, Dev… This way users can download whichever version they like, otherwise it’s hard to find the Brave version they want in the first place.

I think it’s because different versions of the unzipped installer will share the same user data directory after installation. You can try to see…

@q39505399 Do you actually have a problem or are you posting feedback only? I thought at first was a problem, but now I’m wondering. Excuse my confusion. If feedback, you may want to edit your topic title and change the category to the Feedback/Browser Feedback category. Please provide an update. Thank-you! :slightly_smiling_face:
