Installing non-default supported browsers

Starting from Multiloginapp 1.4, there are 2 types of supported browsers:

  • Default bundled browsers. These browsers are automatically downloaded when Multiloginapp 1.4 is launched and are used as default browsers when the browser profile is launched. These include Chromium 56, Firefox 52 and Stealthfox 49.
  • Non-default supported browsers. These browsers are installed manually. These include Chrome versions 51-56, Firefox version 49-51 and Opera 39 and 40.
