    Portable apps are tools that run straight out of a folder.
    You dont need to run a setup exe or anything like that. ;)

    This site has been going for quite a while now and their portable releases are superb quality.

    ALL the apps on this site are free for non-commercial use.


    I recommend this site highly. Check it out.

    My copy of Firefox for example is entirely self contained.
    I dont have to reinstall all my plugins when i reinstall windows because all settings and plugins are saved to the same folder as the exe. (instead of my documents.etc.)

    Thats called credability that is. :D

    The site is pretty sweet, bad thing there isn't that much programs that you can choose from.. if it was a full portable warez site.. that would be really nice :)

    Tbh most of the stuff thats required to make apps portable can be done at the system level with api detours so im suprised there hasnt been an app/library out yet that can do it in a generic fashion. I looked already :(

    If there is one already PLEASE tell me. I want it. BAD.
    Doing it on an app by app system would be REALLY time consuming.

    ^.- Yes. Yes it does.

    Heres how you do it....

    1. Simply place your unplugged pc in a deep bucket of hot soapy water along with your dirty dishes.

    2. And while still holding it underwater, get a friend or loved one to plug in the pc and power it on.

    3 Continue holding underwater untill windows boots. (or you die)

    4. Your dishes might not be spotless but by that point you wont care about them. Problem solved. :D

    Enjoy. :)
