    Portable versions of Most Browsers?

    I would like to know if there are portable versions of the following browsers that can be run off a thumb drive and don't require installation ?

    - Internet Explorer 6 & 7
    - Google Chrome (latest final build)
    - FireFox (latest final build)
    - Opera (latest final build)

    Yes there is a separate Opera USB project that isn't officially from Opera, but I'm not sure what version number it is on. It is updated regularly however. About the other browsers I'm afraid I don't know.

    Chrome, Firefox, Opera all have portable versions, Internet explorer does not (at least not one that works properly).

    Opera: http://www.opera-usb.com/operausben.htm
    Firefox: http://portableapps.com/apps/internet/firefox_portable
    Chrome: http://translate.google.com/translat...chrome-201600/

    Thank you, not too worried about IE as the machine will probably have IE 7 on it at least, as for IE6 I'll test another way.

    SiberianHuskey, well there is always IETester, that can be made portable, after you install just copy the files from the program folders directory into wherever you want and it should work, granted IETester isnt close to perfect but its a start.
