Quite Different

Mozilla Suite and Seamonkey don't support the -profile switch, which is used in Portable Firefox. Unless the new test version of Seamonkey does.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

They Do Now

Seamonkey supports the -p switch now. Maybe a portable version of Seamonkey can be developed soon?

Not the same

the -p switch is useless in a portable scenario. It's only for named profiles. And the suite, Firefox and Thunderbird have always had that. The -profile switch allows you to point to a specific profile not installed on the local machine. Mozilla Suite and Seamonkey do not support the -profile switch.

Suiterunner

In the future SM will be based on the Firefox/Thunderbird toolkit. That means that the switch "-profile" will be available also for SM.

If somebody want to try, you can download the experimental version, called "Suiterunner", from here.

For the moment it's quite usable, but the way is still long.

The present version of SeaMonkey is really really complicated to make portable. I made for me an experimental version that works like a charm, but it has only a "little" problem: there's no way to make it portable on Windows 98 (and I suppose also on Win ME).
