Portable Firefox and Portable Opera

Portable Firefox

Portable Firefox is a fully functional package of Firefox optimized for use on a USB key drive. It has some specially-selected optimizations to make it perform faster and extend the life of your USB key as well as a specialized launcher that will allow most of your favorite extensions to work as you switch computers. It will also work from a CDRW drive (in packet mode), ZIP drives, external hard drives, some MP3 players, flash RAM cards and more.

This is an unofficial package. It is an official build, but has been modified and a specialized launcher added to make extensions portable. No warranty is expressed or implied.

To install, just download the ZIP and unzip it to the root directory of your USB drive. It will create a "firefox" directory and all the requisite directories underneath. To use Firefox on your drive, launch it with the PortableFirefox.exe file in the firefox directory. DO NOT launch the firefox.exe file directly, as this will create a profile on your hard drive or use an existing one. Additionally, be sure you've closed any local copies of Firefox and that they've finished shutting down. Otherwise, a new window of your local install will be launched. This is a feature of Firefox itself to prevent multiple copies running at the same time.

2. The Geeky Way

How To Make A Portable Opera

It's possible to make a portable version of Opera that can run directly from removable media such as a CD or a USB drive (a keychain (or "thumb") flash drive, or a digital camera). Applications could include web site demonstrations, slide show presentations, or simply a way to take your favourite browser (and email) with you wherever you go.

I won't wait for moble phone versions of the browsers, but I can't for them.Very Happy Cause then I could re-write them and use them as even smaller (in memory space) on my USB drive.Very Happy
