Allow multiple chrome users at the same time


Recommended Posts

We have two settings in the WebBookmarks tab.

 

1. The owner user from which it should search the bookmarks.

2. To open the bookmark in the browser of that user.

 

I think that having the 2. option does not make sense if can only select 1 user in 1.

 

Can we have the option to search in all bookmarks from all users, and on open, open it on the respective browser?

+1 to the improvement request. I have the same need. It would be very useful!
Update:  it would be also add an option to search in all users and in different users separately by shortcut and/or using a prefix (1: ... OR p: ...).
Why: I have 2 user profiles - "private" and "work" one, and it is nice to do a search:
1) In all bookmarks → open in the corresponding user profile 

2) In private only → open in the "private" user profile

3) In work only → open in the "work" user profile

Ideal option could be to select where the search is done by default and prefixes/shortcuts for each option (1-3). 

 

Note: Chrome has a support for it (seen in other posts):
 

open -a "Google Chrome" --args --profile-directory="private"

OR

/Applications/Google\ Chrome.app/Contents/MacOS/Google\ Chrome {URL} --profile-directory={profile_ID}

Thank you!

As soon as you introduce prefixes, it makes having this built in to Alfred a rather moot point. In that case, you can use a workflow and make it behave exactly the way you want.
