Best of Gizmo's Freeware: The Portable Apps List

#1 Post by nasimahmed » Sun Dec 27, 2009 11:49 pm

This list provides a collection of portable apps from across Gizmo's Freeware and other sites. Portable freeware is an amazing development. They reduce problems with uninstalling software (you just delete them and don't have to worry about failed installs or incomplete uninstalls), they allow for extra flexibility in copying or moving software to different locations on a portable device or on a PC, and they help improve your privacy and security by running from portable devices like flash drives.

Take your "computer setup" with you, transfer your portable apps to a new computer just by copying and pasting them, or run them from a flash drive, say, at a library. I suggest starting a collection, or an army actually, of your favorite portable apps instead of trying to minimize the number of programs you install.

Portable apps allow me to keep every piece of free software that impresses me, and it frees me from worrying about which programs to keep. Portable freeware is getting very popular and is forcing software vendors to adjust their wasteful ways.



Thanks

I think he is talking about this site: http://www.techsupportalert.com/
On this site it's indicated if a portable version is available.
See for example: TagScanner (scroll down a bit to: "Quick Selection Guide")
