Multiple profiles support

    Hey guys,

    Is there any plan to build in support for multiple profiles in Opera as a GUI feature (not manual changes)? I seem more and more dependant in switching between my Home/Work/Guest profile, and Chrome supports this very smoothly, making it a game breaker.

    Maybe there is a plugin that I am not aware of? Is there a feature request tracker that I am not aware of where this can be suggested?

    Cheers!

          Hi @zalex108, thank you for your answer but I don't really understand the procedure. After doing all that how do I open the different profiles?

          I read https://dev.opera.com/blog/installing-multiple-opera-builds-with-separate-profiles-on-mac/ but it says to use the -csp command line switch.

          That link is for Opera 11, just need to create shortcuts: Points 1 & 4.

          "Path to Opera App" --user-data-dir="Path to custom profile"
