Portable Firefox now cross-platform.

According to this web site you can now use portable Firefox on both a PC and a Mac.

"How It Works (HIW)
Cross-platform Portable Firefox works by using John Haller's excellent Portable Firefox 1.0.6 on the Windows side of things, and a little script I made on the Mac side of things. The script basically keeps two versions of all user profile files. The reason why is simple: as I am sure some of you have figured out, Windows Firefox profiles are not completely compatible with Mac Firefox, only certian files. So I made a script that only copies Mac-compatible Firefox files to the Mac profile, time consuming, I know, but it works."
