Re: What tools do you use to test Portability?

If it does, it’s not portable and you can block the installer. Alternatively and better still, try to run it from a USB s...

Re: Cyberfox

I've never understood why people create forks of Firefox. Why not put the effort you spend into creating a brand new package into the official Firefox. they're useful to me because i can open like 4-5 different portable browsers each with a different purpose (one for weather, another for tech tabs,...

Re: Great example of commercial software
