I would suggest that if you want a separate private Chrome that you consider Canary*, since it is a separate installation and will not share about:flags preferences. You can also try Chrome portable: http://portableapps.com/apps/internet/google_chrome_portable *Canary is "bleeding edge" Chrome - it is not always stable. Sometimes it flat out won't work for a day or two. It may be preferable to just use a portable version.
