PortableApps.com Unveils PortableApps Suite

Have you heard about PortableApp? If not here is a small introduction. A portable app is a computer program that you can carry around with you on a portable device (such as USB drive) and use on any Windows computer. When your USB flash drive, portable hard drive, iPod or other portable device is plugged in, you have access to your software and personal data just as you would on your own PC. And when you unplug the device, none of your personal data is left behind.

Portable applications developer PortableApps.com announced the first release of its new PortableApps Suite. PortableApps Suite is a combination of several popular software programs like Firefox, OpenOffice.org and Thunderbird along with an integrated menu and easy-to-use backup utility.
