#43 I never had to do that

I just uninstall the old, then rename the application directory and install the new. I never lost any profile settings like e-mail or bookmarks or cookies or passwords, but since I rename the program directory (which probably isn't necessary), I do have to move my flash plugin to the new program directory after install, but that's only one DLL file. I also have to reinstall the spell checker, but that's only a few clicks away.

But maybe only the Windows version is that easy.
