Google Chrome for Mac with multiple profiles

Google Chrome supports multiple profiles. The feature is just hidden until it is ready for prime-time. It is really easy to set up on the Linux and Windows version of Chrome. On the Mac it takes some manual work.

I'm sure eventually the Mac version will have a nice GUI to set this up for you. In the meanwhile, I've written a script that does it:

chrome-with-profile-1.0.tar.gz

How do I run the .sh script?

Erik U:

From the terminal "cd" to the directory with the file then run "./chrome-with-profile.sh" (without the quotes)

Sadly this solution isn't very user-friendly. It is a temporary workaround requiring some Terminal skills to make it work right. Hopefully Chrome will make it easy to use multiple profiles soon.
