Backup Profile of all Web Browsers With Hekasoft Backup & Restore

With competition among web browser makers so fierce, you cannot afford to ignore a particular browser because if you do, you are definitely going to miss out on lots of interesting technology. Just the other day, Opera released version 12 with tons of new features, while Firefox is perpetually releasing new features one after the other. Even Internet Explorer isn’t far behind. So instead of sticking to a single browser, we are pretty much coerced into using every browser. Now if you are serious about any browser, you are likely to have customized it to your taste – custom buttons, custom toolbar arrangement, imported your bookmarks and even setup synchronization. But what happens when you have to reinstall Windows, or move to a new computer?

Hekasoft Backup & Restore is a freeware program that offers a one-click solution to browser backup and restore. The utility allows you to backup the user profile folder of all your browsers which contain all your settings, customization, bookmarks and pretty much everything that you have configured on your browser.


Simply run the tool, select your browser – one at a time – choose the backup option and click Start. Hekasoft Backup & Restore will create a backup file and save it to a user defined location as a .backup file. The .backup file is actually nothing more than a renamed ZIP file. It’s possible to open the .backup file using any file archiving program and the content of the file inspected.

To restore the browser’s user profile, open the same tool, select the browser and this time choose the restore function. You will be asked to locate the previously saved backup file. That being done, your user profile will be restore back to the chosen browser.

Aside from browsers, the program can backup user profiles of an interesting mix of programs that includes the FTP program FileZilla, email program Mozilla Thunderbird, calendar program Mozilla Sunbird and VoIP program Skype.

Hekasoft Backup & Restore currently supports:

  • Avant browser
  • Comodo Dragon
  • FileZilla
  • Google Chrome
  • Maxthon 3
  • Mozilla Calendar/Sunbird
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Mozilla Thunderbird
  • Opera
  • Pale Moon
  • Rockmelt
  • Safari
  • SeaMonkey
  • Skype
  • SRWare Iron

I have a feeling, there is more to come.

How to Record CPU and Memory Usage Over Time in Windows?

Whenever the computer is lagging or some application is taking too long to respond, we usually fire up task manager and look under the Performance tab or under Processes to check on processor utilization or the amount of free memory available.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
