    I have Chrome on my computer with a set of opened tabs and another backuped up HDD with Chrome with different set of tabs.

    If I launch the Chrome from the backup HDD and the one from my main HDD, will I have 2 instances of Chrome working together? Will one affect the other?

    They will share the same application preferences file as stored in your Library Folder on your boot drive.

    is there a file where Chrome stores opened tabs? I want to look at the opened tabs without launching the app itself.

    Must be somewhere, but don't know where. Never looked for them.
