Since I only do web development in my spare time I tend to bounce around from one computer to the next depending on where I am at the time. This means that sometimes I have admin rights and sometimes I don't. Sometimes I have all of the applications I need (FTP, image editing, etc.) and sometimes I don't. I always kept an executable copy of Filezilla handy on a flash drive so that FTP was covered and this was usually enough to get me by.
On more than one occassion though I have found myself on a computer wanting to do some HTML/CSS coding but not being able to do so faithfully or efficiently since the PC I was on did not have Firefox and I had no way to install it. Arrgh!
Well the other day I finally crossed paths with Firefox Portable (from http://www.portableapps.com). I downloaded their base suite which includes the portable edition of Firefox 3.5 and looks extremely promising.
I went ahead and installed it on an extra flash drive I had and I was able to install the Firebug add-on as well as the Developer tool bar. So far so good. They also had a portable version of GIMP, 7-zip, XAMPP on a stick, and some other handy goodies so I grabbed just about all of them up. So far it seems too good to be true!
Has Christmas come early or am I in for some trouble with this software? Has anyone used it yet who can either recommend this software or warn me off of it?
