I had collect a lot of useful portable applications and i would like to share those applications with my readers. Let’s look into these applications now:
Firefox is a popular web browsers and portableapps.com had created the portable version of this application. Install this application on your USB drive and you can bring your bookmarks along with you. I have this application in my USB drive together with some useful plugins.
Google Chrome is quite popular browser and it has advantages over other browsers. For example, Chrome will run different tabs as separate processes, which will prevents different windows to interfering each other. So, grab the portable version of Google Chrome and start chroming.
