I have used most of those apps from that website for awhile now on my 1GB stick. Works great, easy to use. Not sure what you mean by U3?

U3 is a company and U3 drives have special U3 software on the sticks other than the portable application you are wanting to use.

I'm too lazy to type out a better explanation so I'll point you to wikipedia for a general idea: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U3

Having Firefox on your thumbdrive is awesome when you get to those computers with IE6 on them and no one wants to change it lol Plus antivirus on the go, so forth. Very cool!

I love portable apps, I use it all the time. In fact, I'm using it now to write this post with Portable Firefox.

I have found it best to disable caching to disk with Portable Firefox, and just use a temp memory cache to improve efficiency.

Definitely recommened it !

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
