WIkiQUsK - You do realize that PortableApps.com is free, that all our tools are open source and free, that the majority of the apps we package that are already portable aren't fully portable on their own and either leave bits behind or have some things break as you move around (some with quite major bits breaking or being left behind as we are discussing here), and PortableApps.com has operated at a loss since its founding, right? Don't let the facts get in the way of your rant, though. :)

"and PortableApps.com has operated at a loss since its founding, right? Don't let the facts get in the way of your rant, though."
That's your statement (and maybe the reality) but unless you show us your books... you could make whatever claims you want, it does not make it a fact.

Please move items unrelated to Firefox to the forums. Thanks.

Can anyone else confirm that Skype 5 is not portable?

Nh on 2011-10-18 13:16

It's annoying to have to close a window busily proposing to upgrade Skype every time you turn Skype on.

@freakazoid I doubt it includes both engines as it will just use the IE engine that is on the Windows you are running it on.

@veekay And? Firefox has had the capability of using Dual engines for a long long time with it's IE Tab add on. From there on you can add whatever features you want.

YouTube downloader worked pretty well, although from the list of avaialble files it doesn't give you much information. Just that it's an FLV file. You then get to guess which one is which. Anyway, it downloaded without any difficulty. Prefer YoutubeDownloader HD, but nice to see this functionality integrated into a browser.

The link here is still to ConvertAll_Portable_0.4.2.paf.exe, not to ConvertAllPortable_0.5.1.paf.exe. Needs updating

ChemZ on 2011-04-18 16:03

Fixed and thanks.

The link has been updated to the website itself. For apps where the download link changes with each version, you're not supposed to direct link to the download (part of the PFC guidelines on the page: "Do not enter the direct URL to the file if the filename is version dependent, or the author forbids external links. For such cases, enter the URL to the download page instead.") Otherwise, you get the old version when the app has been updated but the PFC listing has not.
