@robzuc: see 'What is "portable"' on the "about" page: https://www.portablefreeware.com/about.php Not leaving stuff behind is not "stealth" in the parlance here, and uTorrent works fine when moving from machine to machine and saves your settings.

After i extracted uTorrent.exe 3.5.5 with 7-zip in the extracted folder there are couple of .dll files. Are they needed? Can i delete them?

The PortableApps Platform has been updated (a few times) since this was last updated.
I believe the current version is 11.2 (also there is a version 12 beta, I think its Beta 2)

Please update this listing!

Great player! Thanx for sharing....

smaragdus REALLY? wow I didn't realize that looks over substance was so important to sum people. Now I'm curious what others think about the "looks" of V4 or if most just don't care like me, please don't misunderstand I understand how you feel its just foreign 2me is all I'm saying. Of course if V3 suits your needs then by all means that's the correct version for you to use, no matter what I or others think. Enjoy.:)

webfork: Because it's their preferred portable build. Not everyone will need the full package. The lite / portable build should be sufficient for people building a website for testing locally and on the go.

olliebean on 2018-10-19 14:51

Just for clarification, is the full version portable? Because the only version labelled "portable" at the download link appears to be the lite version, without FTP or Mail.

Note: The description should replace Oracle's MySQL with the community-based fork: MariaDB.
