Is it possible to start Google Chrome in a mode that doesn't have any extensions or bookmarks (or any other preferences). In other words, start it like it was a fresh install (but without deleting the current install).

I'd like to use Chrome in a screen capture but I don't want my extensions and bookmarks visible. I also don't want to be running in Incognito Mode.


Use another profile in Chrome. In the new profile you have the option to port the things you want.

By default it will not have any extensions and will work like a fresh install.
