Interesting site, apparently geared towards the programming crowd -- currently only 46 programs, but does include the three release channels of Firefox
(standard, ESR and Dev).
The possibility of downloading apps in ZIP archives by selecting it in the download form at the bottom of program pages is an useful feature, IMHO.

Many of the programs here aren`t really portable. [...] The programs here use Yaml, which doesn`t seem very reliable in creating portable apps. So, far, of the 10 or so I tested, 8 all created files/folders in the appData folders.
As long as they keep settings when moved to a different computer, they would qualify as portable. The '%APPDATA%
' traces would only affect their stealthiness rating.
More info on YAML: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/YAML
YAML has been criticized for its significant whitespace, confusing features, insecure defaults, and its complex and ambiguous specification. Technically correct YAML can be completely unreadable by humans, especially if string values have leading or trailing whitespace.
